A fireball at night, as bright as a full moon - 29.3.2020 at 22.57 Rovaniemi Observation number 89448

Visibility V / V

While waiting for the northern lights, I took a couple of pictures of the crescent moon, Venus and the Pleiades. The other then happened to be in luck for once and the fireball flashed in the same box.

A few moments earlier, the same was left for the video, though in the direction of the times north.

Satumainen tuuri x2! Onnittelut! Kannattaa eriyttää omiksi havainnoikseen.
