A fireball at night, as bright as the sun - 18.8.2019 at 21.00 Kuopio Observation number 85015

Visibility V / V

But time I sent a message to a friend after the observation and the time of the message is 21.21. I think my cell phone wasn't open just then and I guess I probably wouldn't wake up to take a picture of it because the ball was so fast, so I just had to look and admire it. Stronger in brightness than the moon, in the order of the sun.
