We had here in Finland a very bright bolide in the Sept. night 20/21 at 00:34:41 UT ( at the side of the day 21.). I attach the FINE images from Mikkeli by Aki Taavitsainen and Jani Lauanne and the color image ( with web camera) by Harri Frestadius in Lappeenranta

This was not a meteorite dropper, but had the entry velocity of as big
as about 66 kilometers and exploded at the height of about 80 km.
I have been very busy with this the wole day of yesterday. I got mixed
in the count of, into how may cameras this was captured, but it is about
15 . I may later check this count. In any case this is our new recond in
this. In addition to this, a good number of visual sightings was
received, even tough at an unfavorable time of night.
Also this fireball was probably the brightest that we have ever captured
in our cameras directly visible.
