A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 21.2.2019 at 19.43 Kangasala Observation number 81304

Visibility III / V

Markku Lintinen, Tampereen Ursa

The Sky Watch already had a large number of visual observations and one image when I got to check the sky camera recording. Earthgrazer seems to be based on a long visible flight. The resolution of the original image is halved to 1280x960 in both directions. The video was unfortunately a bit jerky, but the timestamps show the duration of the flight.

Siilinjärvelläkin tämä tuli havaittua, loput 5sek. Punaruskea Marsmainen, lyhyt vana.

Taisin nähdä tuon loppulennon Kangasalan Ruutanantieltä.

Näytti tuolta, mitä Hannukin kuvaili. Punaruskea Marsmainen, lyhyt vana. Ei se siis ollutkaan ilotulite.
