A fireball in a daytime sky - 18.8.2019 at 21.30 Kaavi Observation number 84947

Visibility V / V

Observation from the highway in the direction of travel Juuka> Kaavi, a fireball that seemed to fall into the sky behind the cloud mass in two parts. The speed is amazing. The light was perfectly bright as if looking at the sun. No trace, smoke, etc., was left behind. At the point the sky was clear, if any van had remained, it would have separated from the clouds. My spouse Mirja Hallikainen, who was sitting in the same car, made the same observation.
