A fireball at night, brighter than the venus - 26.4.2023 at 04.03 Jyväskylä Observation number 115663

Visibility III / V

Vesa Vasankari, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Just as I got the foreground lit buildings in the obscurer's dark, it also blocks possibly most of the flight of this fireball that ignited in the relatively low southwest sky. This probably left a mark on Tamere and Ulvilanki's cameras.

Täysin pilvistä ja sateista oli Ulvilassa - ei havaintoa, siis.

On siis näkynyt ilmeisesti lounaassa,ei luoteessa,vaikka kuvatekstissä on luode?

Ei havaintoja Ruotsin asemilta.

On lounaassa, joo. Kävin korjaamassa kuvauksen. Alkaa jo ote herpaantumaan kun paras tulipallokausi käy viimeisiään… ;-)
