A fireball at night, as bright as a full moon - 5.10.2018 at 00.02 Tampere Observation number 78123

Visibility V / V

Jarno Paananen, Tampereen Ursa

When going outside, I happened to hit a very fast, almost flashy very bright ball that seemed to come almost perpendicularly down. Disappeared behind the building. Unfortunately, it didn’t show up on my sky camera, which seemed to have drizzled in its dome.
