A fireball at night, as bright as a full moon - 18.8.2019 at 21.13 Nilsiä Observation number 85016

Visibility V / V

Not visible

A green ball that was possibly already falling apart as it was followed by another piece a little lower. The target did not have a clear tail. I even thought it was a light rocket or fireworks.
