Rocket-related clouds - 22.2.2018 at 19.08 Kaarina Observation number 70963

Visibility Unclassified


I saw a strange foggy light in the sky. At first I thought it was the Moon behind the clouds, but the Moon was elsewhere. I stayed to look at the object and noticed it moving. An hourglass-shaped misty object moved slowly toward me and finally from the north past me. I couldn't estimate the distance. The direction was roughly from west to east.

I thought the light was a quadcopter or something and forgot the whole thing until now I read about the Falcon launch. I think what I saw matched the description.
