A fireball at night, as bright as the sun - 16.11.2017 at 18.40 Inari Observation number 68369

Visibility V / V

Not visible

At first the dogs started barking and I looked out the window and thought someone would come to us by car. The window was flooded with blue light and blue rays. Then the light just popped out. The motion-sensing exterior lights on the south side of the house came on. After a while, there was a rumble.
