A very bright green fireball was seen and recorded streaking through the night sky above northern Germany around 21:50 UTC on April 16, 2019. 

The American Meteor Society (AMS) received more than 40 reports from Germany, Sweden, Denmark and the Netherlands.

The preliminary 3D trajectory based on reports received by the AMS shows the fireball was traveling from SE to NW and ended its flight right above Hamburg.
