Observer
NameMarinus A
Experience Level1/5
RemarksI did not see the actual fireball, I only saw the sky light up (a lot) in a specific direction. I was driving in the country (no street lights) and the sky suddenly lighted up behind the village I was driving towards, as if very powerfull fireworks, or maybe a large military weapon being fired miles away.I then thought it could be a meteor, and found one was sighted 23:14 in northen Jutland, and I assume i probably saw the same event.As stated the clock in my car said 23:15.I think it must been low in the horizon, since it was obscured by trees and buildings in front of me.The direction I gave for seeing the fireball is the direction I saw the sky light up in.
