A fireball in a twilight sky - 8.4.2021 at 05.34 Turku Observation number 97449

Visibility IV / V

Not visible

My alarm was set at 5:33. When I woke up, I saw my "day" as my first observation of a star-like phenomenon in the sky, and I marveled at its color, which was bright green with a shape surrounded by a bright border.

"I didn't know if I could hope for anything in my mind, because the sight was the first of its kind I saw!"
