A fireball at night, as bright as the sun - 16.11.2017 at 18.38 Inari, Ivalo Observation number 68401

Visibility V / V


I sat in the car and was about to start moving when bright "normal" light was reflected from the wall. It dimmed for a moment and brightened again to yellow-orange. At first I thought some work machine was coming, but the light soon disappeared. The car's rear camera recorded the exact time and direction. Video on YouTube . In the car, no sound observations were received.
