A fireball in a twilight sky - 7.5.2018 at 00.55 Tampere Observation number 73602

Visibility IV / V

Markku Lintinen, Kari A. Kuure, Tampereen Ursa

Among other things, the fireball reported in Zenith in Tornio was found in the video of the Night Eye in the Kauppi tower. The picture shows a reflection from Lake Näsijärvi just before the fireball went out.

Last night, the shooting settings had been changed from the previous 1 / 3s to 1/25 s while WDR was activated. This helped the brightness of the northern sky, although it increased the noise.

Kari Kuure edited the video recording and published the observation in Radiant:
