A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 3.12.2014 at 03.58 Vaasa Observation number 31786

Visibility III / V

Tommi Järvilehto, Vaasan Andromeda

Is this a satellite or a fireball? Looks pretty uneven so could there be a fireball?

Before going to bed, I noticed that the sky was clear. I put Gopro on the balcony to photograph the night child. This was found in one box.

Kyllä tämä minun mielestä on selvä tulipallo!

Näyttää joo. Tosin nuo tummat katkokset vähän epäilyttää.
Olisipa saanut tuon loppupuolenkin.

Olen samaa mieltä kuin Pekka! Oli taivaanpallolla melkein vastakkaisella puolella kuin aurinko, joten ei voi olla auringon valaisema satelliitti.

Kiitoksia kommenteista. Aloittelijan säkällä tässä mennään. Ekojen kirkkauden tullessa viedään uusi kamera kokeeksi parvekkeelle ja heti osuu kohdalle. Seuraavaa tulipalloa kennolle saa odotella varmaan 10 vuotta :)
