A fireball in a twilight sky - 18.8.2019 at 21.00 Joensuu Observation number 84968

Visibility IV / V

Not visible

I was jogging and raised my gaze, so I quickly saw a glimpse of a bright ball with a blue-glowing tail. The ball was in front of me and suddenly flashed behind the trees. However, the ball was back and clear. The evening had not yet darkened, but the ball stood out well in the still partly bright sky.
