A fireball in a twilight sky - 7.10.2022 at 06.47 Oulu,Kiiminki Observation number 109805

Visibility III / V


I was driving from the direction of Haukiputaa towards the center of Kiiming, when a bright ball of fire flew "behind me", passed me and flew towards the east, slightly downwards, and disappeared from sight. The pace was fast, the time I managed to see the ball was about 3-5 seconds.
