A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 11.4.2021 at 00.07 Karjalohja Observation number 97488

Visibility III / V

Janne Kommonen, Lohjan Ursa

We watched the movie and to the southeast (120 °) the window showed a nice moderately bright fireball that ran almost the entire length of the window towards the horizon for about a second It ran on the east side quite obliquely as it remained visible until extinction. Seen with a fist from the top of the window 15 ° until extinguished at a height of about 15 degrees from the horizon. The color ranged from yellowish to beautiful emerald green. I looked at the clock and checked the time, the direction of the air and set out to make an observation.
