A fireball at night, brighter than a full moon - 18.8.2019 at 21.16 Hankasalmi, Murtoinen Observation number 84941

Visibility V / V

Arto Oksanen, Jyväskylän Sirius

Fireball in the picture of Hankasalmi Observatory allsky camera. Fortunately, 5 ms of exposure has been recorded even though the camera shoots in the twilight only every minute. There are no stars in the picture and their marked location is a bit wrong, as the orientation of the camera has been changed slightly more to the north. Another image taken the same night has stars for positioning.
