A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 26.2.2017 at 19.45 Toholampi Observation number 61567

Visibility III / V

We were in a car on our way from Kaustinen to Toholammi when I happened to see a light descending from behind the trees. There was a bit of an unreal feeling when a few months back in the same places I saw a similar case. That's when I immediately checked Ursa's website for any observations, but now it wasn't checked until at home.
