A fireball at night, as bright as a crescent moon - 30.10.2022 at 03.57 Vaasa Observation number 110458

Visibility III / V

Timo Alanko, Vaasan Andromeda

The action camera captures repos on the roof brush. Two Taurid fireballs seem to have been recorded in the timelapse. The first at 03:57 and the second point after at 04:05. I guess it's still summer time. Of course, there could have been more balls. The camera pauses for a few seconds between exposures.
