A fireball in a twilight sky - 28.3.2023 at 20.15 Inari Observation number 113853

Visibility III / V


I was driving from Inari to Ivalo, approx. 15 km south of Inari, I noticed a white fireball falling almost vertically in the left corner of the windshield, perhaps a little flickering, which disappeared behind the tops of the trees. The main direction is south, it's hard to say more precisely because the road is winding and the front of the car wanders. The momentum of the phenomenon was intense, beginning twilight.
