At night it became clear for a moment. Night clouds in the sky again, but pretty low this time. I finally took a few pictures from the corner of the house. Attached photo at 1:39 p.m.

Quite intense Nocturnal, whose edge was exceptionally strongly reddened at one point. I don’t remember ever seeing the night clouds that illuminate the same deep and bright red. This was one of the most memorable nocturnal cases in my own way of observing. Larger pictures here: http://jari.pic.fi/kuvat/Atmospheric+phenomena+and+sky/High+atmosphere/2016_08_13-14+Exceptional+Red+Coloration+on+NLC/ At least the panorama is worth a look at the larger size. EDIT: There had also been a clear redness the night before, see e.g., Satu Juvonen's observation .

Night owls. :) And pretty bright yet. A little bad place became a picture taken, but he was so tired that he couldn’t go any further home.

Bright night clouds, but lots of ordinary cloud raft in front. For a moment they formed a nice contrast. In this picture, as a small additional spice, great car lights from behind the forest :)

Jarmo Leskinen, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

After a rainy day, there was a suitable opening in the clouds for more than half an hour and the night clouds were visible again. There were clear clouds until the zenith, and the northern horizon was covered with clouds. More than half an hour of this joy lasted and then dark clouds covered the sky. This time, a little more close-ups because the lower clouds interfered with the taking of wider images.

On the way to Paloheinä hill at an altitude of a couple of thirty degrees, there seemed to be an electric blue glow in the clouds, but there was only a narrow gap on the horizon to reach the hill. There was already a reference to the nocturnals in the first pictures. Gradually, clearly visible streaks appeared at the bottom of the dark wall. One could only imagine what kind of performance was behind the curtain. In northern The Hague, a little slit was still caught after a few belt clips at midnight.

Even in Jyväskylä, there are clearly visible night clouds - as long as those lower ones stay away.

A visit to the yard confirmed this; nights! The husband also went to play ball in the yard and must have found out; the hostess is taken again ... But can Himputti that amount of fog. In it you hear went Focus tires oval on the village road. The filming location should now be found! Now there is an emergency! Fortunately, the spare-spare The filming place still stood above the fog. The show was wider at the beginning and higher, little by little during the hour it started to fall lower, at the same time came the lower clouds and the fog reached the description of the pimple. I would still go t...

Kimmo Kantola, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

I happened to watch the first night cloud observation from Juupajoki tonight and I left to see what it looked like on the side of the yard. Olisha, these night clouds must have been quite spectacular, but the clouds driving a little lower came to disturb from all directions. After all, I managed to get some pictures.

This night cloud season has been good. Lots of great bright plays and great sighting stories and pictures in the Sky Watch. This was also a really stylish play. Let's see if I missed the last of the season, or if it will still burst. EDIT: Added the duration of the observation at the request of the administrator. This was quite short because I was leaving to shoot the stars elsewhere (a place with no view in the direction of the night clouds) and mostly just recorded a momentary view. The night clouds probably appeared longer both before and after my observation.

I just glanced out to find that the illuminating night clouds surprised again sadly in the middle of Saturday night (a night cloud photographer should come standard with a Husqvarna chainsaw) ... On snow (but in RAW format).

Heidi Rikala, Ursa (Helsinki)

Well, after all, there was finally a clear night and illuminating night clouds. Edit; added pictures. Now, this form seemed to escape right away with a first try when I left it a little in the middle. The night clouds were in the northeastern sky and quietly flew north. There was thick fog throughout the observation period. Edit; added a sixth image that also shows a red border. Photographed at 23.50 p.m. I thought about adding it when I read that other observations had a red edge. Personally, I thought it was mostly light pollution or brown ... again, something new had to be learned. This is ...

The norm clouds covered part of it, but I found no reason for the redness visible in them.

Based on other observations on watch, I checked the images from the weather cameras, and a small glimpse of the night clouds found a gap in the thick clouds.
