A fireball in a twilight sky - 18.8.2019 at 21.10 Kuopio Observation number 84955

Visibility IV / V

The sighting seemed to be so close that I initially suspected it was a rocket fired over an adjacent pond. The light was bright and had shades of blue and green before going out quickly fading. The song was divided into two parts, a larger one and a smaller one, the smaller one dropped a little lower than the other song. The actual piece flew straight horizontally and I don’t think much landed during my observation.
