A fireball in a twilight sky - 7.10.2022 at 06.45 Oulu Observation number 109800

Visibility III / V

I was driving the E8 road in a southerly direction when I saw a ball of fire quite high in the sky at around 11:00 a.m., which split into two parts shortly before going out. The fireball went out almost immediately after disintegrating.

FYI. Vesannon pohjoissektorin kameroista ei löydy tähän aikaan havaintoa, on saattanut jäädä matalalle puiden taakse (näistä muutamista havainnoista alustavan sijainnin perusteella).
