A fireball at night, as bright as a full moon - 26.1.2023 at 23.26 Oulu Observation number 111598

Visibility III / V

Not visible

Noticed through the window, a noticeable green ball of fire that went out by fading in about 1 second after I noticed it. The beginning of the fireball was not visible due to the limited viewing angle of the window.

Olin parvekkeella ja näin saman ilmiön, kesti noin sekunnin ja hävisi länteen päin. Kulma oli melko jyrkkä ja valoilmiö oli kirkkaan vihreän fosforimainen.
