A fireball in a daytime sky - 18.8.2019 at 21.22 Kuopio Observation number 84920

Visibility V / V

I didn’t see anything in the sky as I looked at the surface of the lake from the crabs of the sauna, but I felt a strong short-lived bump, with which almost at the same time splashes appeared on the surface of the lake. Therefore, the fireball observations I chose above are wrong, but they seemed forced to choose something for them. I suspect the splashes were fish jumping at the same time, or else some small pieces dropped into the water in abundance at the same time. The splashes in the water were at the eastern end of Lake Laukaajärvi. Event time according to my wristwatch is around 9:22 p.m.
