A fireball at night, as bright as a cresent moon - 9.1.2018 at 08.05 Ulvila Observation number 69406

Visibility IV / V


I drove the car in a northeasterly direction when in front of me, a little to the left, I saw a bright green fireball. I thought someone had fireworks left (young people going to a nearby school). The emergency rocket also came to mind, but green.
