Fireball observed in Finnish skies
Finland’s amateur astronomy association Ursa cited several observations of distinct light phenomena over the skies of Murmansk early Saturday morning. Ursa’s Fireball Task Force representative says the flash was likely the result of a particularly bright meteorite explosion, but is far from the brilliance of the Chelyabinsk meteorite of last year.

Light phenomena were observed in Finland on the Kola Peninsula, in the night skies over Murmansk.

Multiple drivers with dashcams out on the streets of the 300,000-person city at 2:10 am on Saturday noticed a bright blue trail speed across the night sky, and then explode while still in the air.



We didn't see it of course. 13.gif
