A fireball in a twilight sky - 7.10.2022 at 06.46 Parkano Observation number 109804

Visibility III / V

While driving to work in the morning, almost directly in front of me, a ball of fire, etc., a bright object could be seen flying downwards at high speed, bright, thick, and suddenly disappeared. I'm not 100% sure if it was a fireball or some "space junk" that burned up as it entered the atmosphere, but it wasn't a shooting star.
