A fireball at night, brighter than the venus - 17.4.2023 at 03.07 Jyväskylä Observation number 115345

Visibility III / V

Vesa Vasankari, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Spectacular fireball in the northern sky. The first camera (Yi) is directed to the north, the second (Kami) more to the northwest.

I added one more clip of the camera pointing in the same direction as Kami, but this one does not have the night vision function on. The hope has been that, for example, something from the colors of the fireballs would remain on the recordings. This is the first fireball that my experimental Conecto camera has captured, but at least in this case, the untrained eye does not distinguish anything special compared to those night vision recordings.
