A fireball at night, as bright as a full moon - 14.12.2015 at 23.06 Lappeenranta Observation number 46364

Visibility V / V

A few pictures with a small delay, a quick visit to photograph the Geminids and the Northern Lights.

A few star flights remained on the cell as well.

The exposure of the brightest fireball was annoyingly short due to a clotted battery, you should probably buy a couple of new batteries for the body.
