A fireball at night, as bright as the sun - 27.3.2016 at 22.38 Lohja Observation number 50200

Visibility V / V


suddenly my gaze caught on to the bright light and at the same time the dogs ran in the yard towards the starting point of the light barking (there may be some other reason). I watched with a really bright ball of light that was wider and brighter than the star flight I had ever seen. also much slower moving, the brightness and slowness of the emergency rocket came to mind. I saw the fire quickly dim and go out.
