A fireball at night, brighter than the venus - 8.10.2022 at 21.37 Vesanto Observation number 109872

Visibility III / V

Timo Kuhmonen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

The fireball in question had also caught Vesanto's camera, exact time 18:37:35 UTC. Part of the flight was invisible, I estimated the duration to be around 4 seconds. There was no radio observation from this (50MHz radio amateur beacons in the north). The camera also had a grating film for meteor spectra, but no trace was visible.
