A fireball at night, as bright as a crescent moon - 15.3.2023 at 21.20 Jyväskylä Observation number 113482

Visibility III / V

Vesa Vasankari, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

There were already several sightings of this and also a video from Ulvila, based on the time, these could then easily be found here as well. Surprisingly, neither of my cameras' own motion detection had seen this bolide, which, yes, at its brightest, is probably the most spectacular I've recorded. In fact, it even occurred to me that there could be, for example, space debris?
