A fireball in a twilight sky - 15.4.2021 at 21.15 Mikkeli Observation number 97674

Visibility IV / V

Not visible

I sat in the woods when a big-looking fireball? appeared in front of me on the shore of heaven on the other side of the class. And soon disappeared behind the trees. Looked like it would have landed a couple of kils away for my mom. I didn’t see it go out it most remembered how big it looked.
