With the timing of another celestial camera from Tampere, this was also found in Kauppi's eastern camera. The flash has been bright, because in Kangasala, the sky would illuminate even from outside the field of view.

Kirkkaalta vaikuttaa. Hienoa kun näistä tulee nykyään usein myös kuvaa. Varsinkin jos on itse nähnyt tulipallon, niin on mielenkiintoista verrata kokemusta kuviin.
