A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 14.12.2014 at 19.18 Vaasa Observation number 31967

Visibility III / V

Tommi Järvilehto, Vaasan Andromeda

The 25-year celebration of Andromeda in Vaasa went fruitfully with mulled wine and pepper, following the Geminides and they were very nice to see. The audience got to see several star flights during the evening. As the clouds came, this was visible through the thin clouds.

In addition, one image of the basic Geminid.

Herranjestas miten hienosti dokumentoitu tämä Vaasan Andromedan tulipallo. Mahtava kompositio myös kuvassa.

Hieno kuva! Onneksi olkoon!

Geminidejä nähtiin tosiaan runsain mitoin Vaasan Andromedan 25-vuotisjuhlassa Meteoriihellä. Yleisökin pääsi niitä ihailemaan suhteellisen hyvissä olosuhteissa.

Su 14.12.14 klo 19.18 olimme matkalla Porvoosta Mäntsälään. Matkalla näkyi kirkas tulipallo juuri klo 19.18 lännen-luoteen suunnassa. Oli näkyvissä vajaa 2 s. ja meni etelän suuntaan puitten taa. Pimeyden takia oli komea. Paras näkemäni ainakin 10 vuoteen.
