A fireball at night, as bright as a crescent moon - 2.1.2023 at 23.23 Jyväskylä Observation number 111315

Visibility III / V

Vesa Vasankari, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Three views of the south-facing fireball. The pictures give the impression that it might be a relatively local event when viewed from Jyväskylä. And I don't mean a collision with a power line :-) but an interaction with cloud layers. The first camera points to the southeast, the second is a wider view to the south, and the third is to the southwest.

On varmaankin kameran kuvankäsittelyalgoritmien luomaa efektiä tuo "interaktio pilvikerrosten kassa". Kohinansuodatusjuttuja tms.
