A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 26.11.2018 at 20.56 Helsinki, Pukinmäki Observation number 79520

Visibility III / V

Esko Lyytinen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

There is a fireball camera observation. The duration in the automatic detection was 2.04 s. And went out a couple of degrees east of the north-east with an elevation of 11.6 degrees.

It was so fast that it was not a meteorite dropper but burned to the end maybe in the end strongly disintegrating.

Tämä kamerahavainto oli minulle mukava referenssi oman visuaalihavaintoni tarkkuudelle.  Näin saman tulipallon Pornaistenniemellä vain nelisen kilometriä kamerastasi etelään.

Tulipallon paikka, radan kaltevuuskulma ja kesto menivät melko hyvin kohdalleen. Kellonajan tarkastin heti pallon nähtyäni, mutta muut asiat kirjasin noin 10 min myöhemmin mielikuvan perusteella.
