A fireball in a twilight sky - 9.1.2018 at 08.08 Hämeenlinna Observation number 69414

Visibility IV / V


I was coming by car to Hämeenlinna from the direction of Helsinki on the highway, about a kilometer before the 10-road junction, when I saw a fireball in the direction of the upper right corner of the windshield. The line left by the fireball was yellowish & greenish. The direction of the fireball was about north.
