A fireball at night, as bright as a cresent moon - 26.1.2019 at 20.36 Rovaniemi Observation number 80807

Visibility IV / V

Lauri Turunen, Corona Borealis, Rovaniemi

We drove by car in Rovaniemi on Vennivaarantie, when a bright star flight appeared directly above, which continued straight down for several seconds and disappeared behind Vennivaara, ie to the northwest of us. Before disappearing behind the danger, it looked as if the song had split into two parts.
