A fireball at night, brighter than a full moon - 8.11.2017 at 17.32 Kannus Observation number 68211

Visibility V / V

Päivi Peltoniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

I was just about to go cycling and I was on the phone in the yard telling me that there were handsome northern lights and watching them to the north while at the same time looking like a stellar flight every moment after landing fell perpendicular down and brightened really long before it went out. I didn’t sas that phone-modified that flight path but came from the left uphill and then after a while fell straight down. And was by no means very high. S
