Rocket-related clouds - 11.11.2016 at 23.25 Tampere Observation number 58341

Visibility IV / V

Not visible

I thought at first I saw a tail star, and I’m not sure which one it was. I didn't hear any sound. But I saw a big ball (much larger than a normal star) with a clear tail advancing from northwest to north. The ball clearly advanced at a moderate pace (satellite pace) and as it moved north it blurred and lost. At first, when I noticed the sighting the ball was very clearly noticeable, but started to blur pretty soon.
