A fireball at night, as bright as a cresent moon - 15.7.2021 at 23.48 Kemiö, Högsåra Observation number 99624

Visibility IV / V

Jouko Markkanen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

The handsome summer car hit the middle of the field of view. Quite evenly clear, I would estimate the magnitude maybe even -10, although the twilight of summer night makes it a bit difficult to evaluate. From the middle it started to get green, and from the end it was emerald green.
