A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 25.7.2021 at 01.15 Pori Observation number 99922

Visibility III / V

Not visible

The fireball progressed quieter than normal horizontally, initially at normal brightness, after which it brightened slightly and finally split into two parts. The two parts were no longer visible for two seconds and dimmed normally out of sight. I especially remembered the slower-than-normal pace, the longer duration of the observation, and the distribution.
