A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 13.9.2013 at 23.23 Siikalatva Observation number 18319

Visibility III / V

A very slow and colorful fireball rose from the horizon. I was just starting to shoot the faint northern lights visible from behind the clouds and the focus had still sadly gotten too close. Edit, the camera clock seemed to be wrong, so I corrected the observation time.

Näistä reposistakin kannattaa laittaa oma havaintonsa tänne Taivaanvahtiin, niin tulevat nekin mukaan tilastoihin!
