Hienoa kun löytyi toinenkin havainto samasta tulipallosta.

Mullakin taitaa olla kuva tästä, näyttää ainakin samalta kuin minkä näin. Täytyypi tarkistaa huomenna vielä täsmääkö aikakin.

Näin tämän livenä. Ehkei puolikuun luokkaa, mutta venusta kirkkaampi, mielestäni. Oli kyllä upea, sinivihreä ja jätti vanan useaksi sekunniksi. Harmi, ettei kamera valottanut sillä hetkellä. Oikeaan suuntaan kyllä osoitti.
