A fireball in a twilight sky - 5.8.2014 at 01.52 Helsinki Observation number 28552

Visibility IV / V


While photographing a few night-cloud negatives, the fireball dropped low on the horizon to the north. The entire visible flight path grabbed the cell. The air was warmly damp and the humidity worsened the seeing and dimmed the fireball.
