A fireball at night, brighter than the venus - 27.9.2022 at 20.30 Vantaa, Pohjois-Nikinmäki Observation number 109562

Visibility III / V

Not visible

It looked like a shooting star at first, but it lasted a really long time and maybe moved a little slower. Looked like a burning fireball with a tail. It took so long that I dared to tell my friend to look and he looked and dared to say what is that and then the ball disappeared behind the trees, no extinction was seen.
