A fireball at night, brighter than a full moon - 7.2.2012 at 23.14 Salo Observation number 1903

Visibility V / V


Came from the northeast went southeast, an angle of 25 degrees. The brightness was almost like a green defense rocket. We were heading south towards the salon Piihovi on the straight after Maenala school.

For some reason, the fireball looked green when seen through the car’s glass and finally went out reddish. Rarely have I seen anything spectacular. I've been dreaming of putting in a meteor camera for a long time, some of the supplies are already in place ...

Jäi vähän tosta tekstistä pilkkuja ja äänpisteitä pois yöllä... No kai siitä selvän saa...
