Tallinn, Estonia Bolide  20:40-20:50 Europe/Tallinn) 5th april, 2011
Me an my friend saw something like meteor about 20:40-20:50 Europe/Tallinn (5th april). It wasn't even dark yet and the asteroid was really near and really bright (kind of flame in movies like armaggeddon). It was about 20 degrees of sky long and flame was really really clear. It could not be anything else, cause it was quite fast. It lasted about 3 second. It took place in Tallinn, Estonia.
Direction was from south to north. No pieces were falling off and there was no sound.
If anyone else saw it, then i would be very thankful when I could have more information about that more.
