A fireball at night, brighter than a full moon - 27.9.2022 at 20.30 Kerava Observation number 109544

Visibility III / V


The map does not open on a mobile phone. The observation happened while I was walking in Itäkaurta. The ball moved between north and northeast. It moved quite quickly and was very bright at first. The sphere showed orange and yellow "flames"/flames around a bright white center. When it turned off, it looked like it was smoky. No voice.
