A fireball at night, as bright as a crescent moon - 18.3.2023 at 21.00 Muonio Observation number 113553

Visibility III / V

We were skiing from the Mäntyrova wilderness towards the hotel Palla, when on our right side a green round object dropped from the sky "over Jerisjärvi". There was a streak of light behind it. I can't judge how high it was. And I can't translate the picture of this form on my cell phone from which direction it flew, but at times it dropped pretty much straight down.
