A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 2.4.2016 at 21.51 Kempele Observation number 51052

Visibility III / V

Jarmo Leskinen, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

Yesterday's fireball was also recorded in the pictures of the allsky camera. Animated gif animation. The fireball stands out from the pictures quite weakly because it wasn’t completely dark yet. The apparent twist in the flight path is probably due to distortion in the images caused by the camera dome.
