Sky camera observation. Came from outside the picture, so the total duration is unknown. Based on the image data, the field of view was about 1.3 s before fading.

You would think there are other observations of this when it has happened at a fairly opportune time. Put your own report here if you happened to see it.

Näin saman valopallon Ukonjärvellä, Ivalossa. Normaalia "tähdenlentoa" todella huomattavasti kirkkaampi. Näkyvä lentoaika oli kutakuinkin tuo ilmoitettu, mutta siitä jäänyt "vana" kesti taivaalla yli 1,5minuuuttia
