Tulihan se sieltä tännekin. Aivan supermahtavaa!

Mahtava osuma! Pidetään peukkuja että jotain joskus tällaisista löytyisi.

Kiitos kommenteista. Olisihan se aika huikeaa jos meteoriitti joskus löytyisi. No nyt ainakin on viime vuosina on useita lupaavia tulipalloja saatu kuvattua meteorikameroilla ja järkkäreillä. Toki tämä Suomen maasto tuo omat haasteensa etsintöihin, mutta ehkäpä joku kerta kaikki natsaa kohdalleen.
