A fireball at night, as bright as a full moon - 29.6.2016 at 01.33 Lappeenranta Observation number 54107

Visibility V / V


I spotted a fireball while driving on the road in the direction of 387 LPR. The location is accurate, the direction of observation behind the windshield is northwest- Northeast between .. probably.

The fireball appeared very bright despite the bright summer night, greenish in color. Before it went out, it "flashed" and broke up into a couple - into three smaller parts.
