A fireball at night, as bright as the sun - 16.11.2017 at 18.40 Inari Observation number 68362

Visibility V / V

I lay on the mattress under the window when there were bright flashes of light between the blinds. I assumed, for example, that a garbage truck has come into the yard with long lights that it flashes for some reason. The color of the light was light / yellow. After a while (or maybe at the same time, I’m not quite sure) there was also a sound as if someone had collided with a car on the ladder of a house. That is, some kind of rush.
