A fireball in a twilight sky - 20.7.2021 at 00.55 Kouvola Observation number 99742

Visibility IV / V

As I smoked, I suddenly saw a relatively slow and bright light in the sky that dimmed as it went and disappeared. There were no trees or any obstacles from the moment of observation. Apparently returned to space.

I wondered for those few seconds when it went so slowly and as a "big" stellar flight.

The birds in the area began to make their warning sounds, but there was nothing in the human ear.
