A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 11.4.2021 at 02.47 Mustasaari Observation number 97667

Visibility III / V

Tommi Järvilehto, Vaasan Andromeda

I left the camera for the night to photograph the northern lights. A pretty bright fireball must have been at dawn. 2 15s exposures. The stunned ball hit just between the two exposures. Frost on the lens.

The third image is a combination of the two. Vana looks broken. Information missed between two exposures.
