A fireball in a twilight sky - 7.8.2017 at 01.10 Lieto Observation number 65963

Visibility IV / V


I was in the nautelankoski describing the moonlight and fog when I had just changed places to see the end of the fireball.

The direction more closely was from northeast to southwest in the northern sky. Unfortunately, I was just putting the camera on a tripod.
