A fireball at night, as bright as a crescent moon - 2.10.2022 at 21.35 Vehkataipale Observation number 109718

Visibility III / V

I made my sightings from the car while driving south on Vehkataipelentie towards Lappeenranta. The evening sky was dark and there was no other traffic. The fireball was green, and it was visible directly in front of me. At first I thought it was fireworks, but since it disappeared so suddenly, I thought it was a fireball.
