A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 6.12.2011 at 19.34 Espoo Observation number 628

Visibility III / V

Timo Kuhmonen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

In the context of halo observation, a visually spotted fireball, not top-notch - but nice for a long time to see these. Between ignition and extinction points, in the sky an estimated 25 degree interval. Flew on both sides of lunch, lit from southwest to south, and extinguished from southwest slightly to the west. In the sky, it progressed on the clock face at about four o'clock, that is, slightly sloping to the right. Its brightness was at most the same level as that of Jupiter under the moon, perhaps a little less.

Mahtoiko kenenkään automaattikameroihin jäädä tästä havainto...? Kiinnostaisi kuulla, jos kennolle tarttui.
