A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 5.10.2012 at 23.18 Väståboland Observation number 8284

Visibility III / V

Timo Kuhmonen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

The most handsome fireball I've ever seen. A mist in the sky happened to hit my eyes when the sky was photographed. Ignited approximately in the ass (estimated from a height of 45ast). Turned off fading after passing the M31 (estimated altitude 60ast). It was a couple ... three times brighter than Venus). Duration about 3 sec.
