A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 22.3.2020 at 19.47 Kauhava Observation number 89257

Visibility III / V

Oskari Syynimaa, Lakeuden Ursa

As we drove the car, we saw a fireball with our female friend heading north. There was a cloud of gauze in front of the ball, so it was difficult to assess the true brightness. However, certainly brighter than Venus. Because I had to focus on steering, I didn’t see the extinction properly.
