A fireball at night, brighter than a full moon - 27.3.2018 at 00.09 Taipalsaari Observation number 71996

Visibility V / V


I watched the telly at home as I drew attention to the fireball which was really bright, at first I thought it was an emergency rocket or fireworks, the light faded either before the tops of the trees or a little before. It seemed that the fire ball was not far in the sky maybe 2-5km
