A fireball in a daytime sky - 18.8.2019 at 20.00 Leppävirta Observation number 84996

Visibility V / V

Not visible

Clear, broke into a couple of smaller pieces and there was no sound. A little longer than the basic flash of a starburst. But it was pretty big for those “bright pieces” out there in the sky when it broke up. The sky was a pretty clear evening sky, not yet dim so there was no effect illuminating the sky and the road.
