A fireball in a twilight sky - 18.10.2018 at 20.45 Mustasaari Observation number 78694

Visibility IV / V

Timo Alanko, Vaasan Andromeda

I tried to better describe the lower part of the Milky Way. However, the moon ruined those dreams, and not even a strong wind on the beach helped the situation. However, one box was hit by a fast starburst. It looked pretty live, but it was pretty dim on the cell. However, green and red stand out slightly in the image. The swipe was so fast that I didn’t really have time to memorize the details. It feels like green started and ended with a red twinkle.
