A fireball at night, brighter than the venus - 7.12.2022 at 01.00 Mustasaari Observation number 110941

Visibility III / V

Hi, I haven't thought about reporting these before, but my brother and an acquaintance of mine are more into "stargazing". They told about this possibility. This is probably the so-called norm. shooting star. I looked at the star chart on the computer and noticed that Uranus could be seen if the full moon did not interfere with visibility. First I looked at the moon and Mars on the left, then I tried to get Uranus on the right side of the moon in the binoculars. Then I saw this shooting star in the binoculars and it was a great experience. Seen many times with the naked eye, but the first time through binoculars. KLO time can be thrown away when I spent time outside and finally on the computer researching this announcement thing. The watch was not on the hand outside. I'll have to remember this time next time if I want to report something. Oh yeah, there was no sound. The area of our cabin was also completely quiet this late. The sky was clear but a few clouds on the north side. Around the moon also the HALO phenomenon in a full circle. Now I'm off to the country :-)

Minulla oli kamera nakuttamassa timelapsea Kuusta ilmeisesti MELKEIN oikeaan suuntaan tai sitten kamera piti parin sekunnin taukonsa kuvien juuri väärällä hetkellä :( Ei näy kuvasarjassani.
