A fireball at night, as bright as a cresent moon - 23.1.2020 at 03.06 Kangasala Observation number 87584

Visibility IV / V

Markku Lintinen, Tampereen Ursa

The direction of Tampere's observation also encouraged searching in Kangasala's pictures, where there is a large opening to the east due to the forest. This was evident and the images from the more sensitive camera than Tampere also show the immediate surroundings in the sky illuminated by the final flash.

(I forgot that Star of Heaven does not allow observations of different places to be recorded with the same timestamp. So here is the cut-off time instead of rounding)
