A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 3.10.2013 at 23.49 Mäntyharju Observation number 18700

Visibility III / V

Markku Siljama, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

An observation made from the window of a moving car, visible to the left in the northeastern direction among the tops of the trees, blue-white in color.Length less than 10 degrees, observed between the trees.

It's a pity that I had stopped star shooting 10 minutes earlier (the rise of Jupiter, in the direction of the fireball) and I was on my way home .. :(

This may be the same fireball that was observed in Iiti at the same time.

Weather: perfectly clear
