A fireball at night, brighter than a full moon - 27.3.2018 at 00.05 Lappeenranta Observation number 72018

Visibility V / V

Not visible

I saw a bright fireball (cone-shaped, with a shimmering blue at the bottom, an otherwise shimmering white) from the second-floor window of our apartment. Surprisingly large, lost to the horizon behind the forest.

I couldn't hear any noises inside, the TV was open too.
