Light pillars

29.11.2021 at 22.00 - 22.30 - Salla (II)
Dennis Lehtonen

I went outside to take out the trash and noticed bright individual rays in the southern sky. A little puzzled, I wonder if there is a northern lights? However, the curves weren’t so promising, so I found that option quite unlikely. I turned my gaze toward the center of the municipality and noticed a rather tense beam. I thought there were even great artificial light pillars. I went to take a picture of the driveway and sent it to the telegram group. Miettinen Ville pointed out that there would be map halves. From this I rejoiced somewhat and set off to run towards the center where the rays of ...

Tero Moilanen

There were many observations from this fireball. The flight was recorded on two cameras, the beginning of the flight is shown in the camera facing southeast and the middle part of the flight is shown in the camera facing south, the rest is left out of the picture.

Light pillars

Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

The wife called from the road and made a fuss about the pillars. There was a lot of ice crystal in the air and I tipped to shoot in the open forest. Quite handsome pillars were visible.

Light pillars

Annika Päiväniemi

I drove home from work. Throughout the journey, the oncoming car lights formed pillars of light into the sky. About a mile before home, the street lights in our village formed an incredibly fine pillar show in the sky.

Several halo forms

Paula Mattila

Halo almost left behind the lower cloud in the afternoon of Ruissalo.22r was more visible when I was just on my way to Saaronniemi but there were more clouds on the beach, something was visible after all.

One halo form

Nina Mäki-Kihniä, Porin Karhunvartijat

As a staggeringly large pond, a blazingly colorful, blindingly bright side sun on the right side of the sun, a smaller, more familiar-looking version, but also painfully bright and colorful, on the left side as well. Remained for at least an hour north of the city, clearly weaker in the city. The bad distress I took when I got out of the car doesn’t even do justice to the already finalized phase of the phenomenon, the one on the left is behind the roof of the house, only a small part of the top peeks. The sun is hidden behind a tree in the middle.

Quiet aurora arc

Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Just as I got to the scene, the clouds started flying in front. However, statistical scraps are recovered here near Turku.

Quiet aurora band

Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

For a long time, northern lights had to be seen when, due to the work, they had not been able to control and there was no weather. The nearest forest as a shooting area. It was pretty.

Active aurora band

28.11.2021 at 22.30 - 02.30 - Valtimo (III)
Eero Karvinen

Pretty little northern lights show in a situation where there was a lot of plasma and Bz bounced properly to the minus. One substorm was seen, but another, the development of the morning night, was lost as a pseudo breakup and energy was lost in it. This event provided for the brightening of the arch stretched south without it spreading south and north. Pictures below. The third image below shows a false start. One small lunar halo also fit.

Rare halos

28.11.2021 at 22.20 - 00.30 - Juva (IV)
Petri Martikainen, Ursa (Itä-Suomi)

The wind calmed down and the weather became clearer during the evening, so I went to see if there was any ice mist made by snow cannons near Hasamäki. It was about 12 degrees below zero. This time I didn’t have to be disappointed, I immediately hit the right place. The fog was dense and the stars shone through the fog in the sky. It was a great atmosphere and the halos were quite spectacular, the Schulthesses and ala-Kerni, which flashed in the full sky for a while, look better. I managed to shoot in the first place for a good while before the wind turned and took the fog away (Figures 1-6). T...

Light pillars

Petri Martikainen, Ursa (Itä-Suomi)

I decided to check the northern lights situation with the camera when I was leaving for the cannon mists in Hasamäki in the evening. The sky was clear for a long time, but there was some cloudiness to the north. No northern lights were visible in the pictures, but one bright pillar of artificial light caught my attention. I took a few pictures of it. The light source was the greenhouses of Turakkala Garden, which is 17.0 km from the scene. To the right of the brightest pillar were a couple of dimmer pillars, but their source is harder to locate. There could be some 5-way lights at about the sa...

Today there were great bright northern lights that covered about half the sky. Unfortunately, the clouds covered the other half of it and later both. The outside gauge showed -27 degrees and the camera's batteries are pretty weak, as they clot quickly. I didn't bother 100m beyond the backyard to leave.

A fireball at night, brigter than the venus

This has presumably been quite bright as it is well visible through the clouds.

A fireball at night, brigter than the venus

28.11.2021 at 19.52 - Orimattila, Artjärvi, Tähtikallio (III)
Veikko Mäkelä, Ursa (Helsinki)

Jorma Ryske reports that a fireball had been seen in Tähtikallio's camera. It would seem to have looked pretty good, even though there was a thin cloud of sky in the sky. The weather situation seems to be similar to what Harri Kiiskinen reported from Jyväskylä . The appearance of a fireball is similar. There seems to have been a small flare-up at the end of the fireball. Attached is the original, slightly highlighted and cropped and zoomed version of the image. The exposure of the image is 56 s and apparently the entire fireball has fit into this time fork.

For a long time, even a small halon in the sky behind a cloudy cloud curtain. The main image is a single image, the second is a stack of 40 images, and the third is still bg-processed. Stacking and processing did not bring out more shapes.

I raised Mavic for a small frost test (-15). Well done and preyed on a couple of halos at the same time. The first image is slightly tuned with Snapseed's HDR function. The second original.

Moon

Pentti Ketola, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

The clear frost on the morning of 28.11.2021 showed the moon quite nicely, so this time I had to take a picture with face focus.
