A fireball at night, as bright as a crescent moon - 27.9.2022 at 20.30 Vantaa Observation number 109613

Visibility III / V

Not visible

I was in the middle of the outdoor lights, but my attention was suddenly drawn to a burning, "meteorically falling" light. It burned green-yellow, more green, and it could be angular, maybe in the shape of a sea ray (how would you describe it better now), but this "angularity" could also be an optical illusion.
