A fireball in a twilight sky - 18.8.2019 at 21.05 Tervo Observation number 84946

Visibility IV / V


At first, an airplane in the glow of the evening sun came to mind at first. There were two smoke hats behind, which disappeared immediately. The song itself was at least angular at the stern. The object was bright, fast flying. Flew from south to north. Eventually, it disintegrated into small pieces that went out right away. I made the observation while boating.
