A fireball in a twilight sky - 9.8.2014 at 01.13 Helsinki Observation number 28718

Visibility IV / V

The gaze was quite in the right direction as a glowing spark-like fireball ignited at a height of about 40 degrees above The Hague Vocational School and fell almost straight down, leaning east by about 5 degrees. The actual obvious old fireball did not leave behind. The fireball was eye-catching in its brightness, but it could not be judged brighter than Venus.
