There are a couple of other observations from this that I search for in the Night Eye recording. There was a handsome northern lights background almost all evening.

Video of almost 5s flight:

Hieno meteori ja tosiaan hienolla taustalla! Valoisa lento oli noin 55 km pitkä, suuntaan 64 astetta noin 41 asteen jyrkkyydellä Vaasan ja Evijärjen välillä. Syttymiskorkeus 74 km ja sammuminen noin 38 km korkeudessa. Ei kuulunut mihinkään tunnetumpaan tähdenlentoparveen.
