A fireball in a twilight sky - 18.8.2019 at 21.30 Laukaa, Lievestuore Observation number 84977

Visibility IV / V

Not visible

My sister and I were at my home over coffee when we heard a big bang. We wondered tonight what that was.

I heard from a friend that at that time that fireball had been in central Finland.

The blinds were closed so there are no sightings. The sound resembles an explosive, a loud momentary bang. Really low which was close
