A fireball in a twilight sky - 15.7.2021 at 01.20 Tampere Observation number 99594

Visibility IV / V

Markku Lintinen, Tampereen Ursa

Summer is already starting to darken and more is starting to show than Sunsets and night clouds. The previous evening ball fired by many was not found in the pictures from Tampere's cameras, but the last one recorded an earthy-looking calm flight of just over 6 seconds. The direction of Saturn, which also came to be observed here for the first time this summer. A little later, Jupiter also became bright in the picture area. Pictures taken from the beginning, middle and end of the flight.

Hieno havainto Markku! Hyvä Tampere! Justiinsa katselin havaintoja jonossa ja tuumin että onkohan jäänyt kenellekään kamera-uistimeen tämä.
