A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 9.1.2018 at 08.07 Nurmijärvi Observation number 69496

Visibility Unclassified

As we drove the car with my son, we noticed a green ball flying in the sky. At first I suspected it was a faulty colored emergency rocket, but the speed of the light ball was remarkably high and the ball was really bright.

I suspect the ball is missing from view due to the woods. We didn't see the extinction.
