A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 9.1.2018 at 08.10 Tampere Observation number 69405

Visibility III / V

I was taking my 11 year old son to school on 8.10 in the morning We drove north on Ruskontie in Tampere towards Juvankatu. Suddenly we said together "seer?" In front of us behind the forest fell a green ball of some sort. There was no flushing and nothing in the car. I said it was a meteorite. I haven't seen it before ... But it could also be some kind of fireworks. The boy was not heard by anyone at school believed. Well luckily the magazines read and we got proof ...
