A fireball at night, as bright as a cresent moon - 25.2.2019 at 05.46 Kangasala Observation number 81519

Visibility IV / V

Markku Lintinen, Tampereen Ursa

Kangasala's observation about the winter holiday week is a few days late. This camera seems to be bothered by the falling between video frames (as in the previous observation). The flash must have been very bright and there seems to be something thrown to the side in the two separate images.
