A fireball at night, as bright as a full moon - 27.9.2022 at 20.20 Jyväskylä Observation number 109635

Visibility III / V

Not visible

A very bright light in a cloudless sky. The "tail" of the oversized ball was surprisingly short. The flight seemed to last a long time. I had time to make at least three wishes in my mind (when you see a shooting star, you have to wish for something). I'm not much of a sky-gazer, but I couldn't help but see this. A unique experience for me.
