A fireball at night, as bright as a cresent moon - 27.8.2016 at 23.25 Kemiönsaari Observation number 56312

Visibility IV / V

While the Venetians were being led and the Milky Way was photographed, a comic fireball guy happened to drag him across the sky. To my host and friend, I screamed in the dark that "what the Airborne brought was" ... after a moment of lottery and diligent debate, it was heard from the dark pier "south" from two mouths. I believe it was;)
