A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 4.9.2013 at 22.38 Tampere Observation number 18002

Visibility III / V

Jari Luomanen, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

I saw this through my windshield as I drove toward the observation site. A handsome whim, of which I saw only the rest. Because I made the observation while driving, those altitude in the sky and the direction angle estimate can indeed be estimates. I had to stay on the road in spite of everything. :)
