A fireball at night, as bright as a full moon - 22.9.2019 at 04.51 Tampere Observation number 85735

Visibility V / V

Markku Lintinen, Tampereen Ursa

Oulunsalo observation no. I also found 85699 in the northern camera of Tampere (and also in Kangasala). This was quite bright because one picture shows a reflection from the surface of Lake Näsijärvi. Two flashes stand out from these images (the third in Kangasala's picture)
