A fireball at night, as bright as the sun - 11.7.2021 at 23.50 Vantaa, Myyrmäki Observation number 99455

Visibility Unclassified


I saw a neon green bright light that dripped from the sky quickly and disappeared behind the houses and the forest. I was wondering if the plane crashed, star, what crashed to the ground? It was quick, but I had time to see that something really seemed to be dropping to the ground from the sky. Dripping and light got my attention attached to the target, but the target disappeared so soon that I just had time to tell my party what dropped from the sky? Others did not have time to notice anything because they did not look in the same direction. There was no sound. Could it be a ball of light or a rocket?
