A fireball at night, as bright as a full moon - 16.11.2017 at 18.40 Muonio Observation number 68374

Visibility V / V

Not visible

Once observations are requested, then if this is of any help. The picture shows a light at the top right of the time.
The blue arrow points north.
This flash had caught on to two frames. Normally, the image is dark black, so I guess that light comes from the meteor. There is about as much light as there is during the full moon.
The exact time of the clock is 18:40:23.
EDIT: Poor quality yotube video
