Visibility IV / V
We were sledding on ice on our cottage on Ahvensaari on Saturday evening, March 31 at 9 pm, in the light of the full moon. Suddenly my attention caught on to a bright tail-star-like phenomenon that came down the road quite sharply in the north. My first thought was that it was a "New Year's rocket" because it was so bright and seemed to be close. Even the 11-year-old boy had time to see it before it went out over a nearby island after about 4 seconds, silently. I have never seen a similar phenomenon before.
