A fireball at night, brighter than a full moon - 27.3.2018 at 00.08 Vihti, Nummela Observation number 72004

Visibility V / V

Not visible

Looks the same type as the fireworks that made a clear turn and eventually turned down and eventually went out. (I can't get a translated picture on my phone). Could even break into small pieces that caused a "star rain" effect. It was really bright and for a moment I imagined it to be a colorless emergency rocket. It was really low. There was no sound. The plane flew from the ground "up close". In the backyard I noticed and above the field I saw clearly so hard to answer that height. Low.
