The forest fire debris was still in full force. The plays seem to follow a pattern in which a broad purple-like glow at the top and an orange pearl-brown glow at the bottom first appears. Then the brown rays appear, which are best visible for about 5-10min. The brown then shrinks toward the horizon. The whole play only lasts about 20-25min. Image times: 1) 20.46 brown rays at their most spectacular 2) 20.40 wide purple brown at the beginning of the play 3) 20.44 brown rays in a wide angle image #synty: Canadian Forest Fires 2017

Bishop was visible around the Sun even today, the recording medium just wasn’t the best for this purpose (there’s no wise winner). Canadian forest fires continue to smoke. #synty: Canadian Forest Fires 2017

Brown rays or maybe twilight rays because the sun had set some time ago. The skyline was great. #synty: Canadian Forest Fires 2017

We were with the family coming from a spa trip, we noticed a strange colored evening brown and reddish clouds. The sun set on the way and we drove to Ruka to shoot. The nice "brown rays" were visible for about 10 minutes. The pillar of the sun was visible all the way from Kuusamo to Ruka. These are probably the Canadian forest firefighters. #synty: Canadian Forest Fires 2017

On the evening of September 5, 2017, I went to the beach to photograph the rising moon and at sunset the reflections were visible in the form of a fan in the western sky. The view could not be properly captured on camera. #synty: Canadian Forest Fires 2017

In early September, strong browns caused by forest fires in Canada were observed. Here is my observation about brown in Ulvila on September 5, 2017. We noticed brown at the Ulvila observatory during the club night. Rusko resembled pearly clouds in nature, I noticed Rusko at half past nine in the evening. I watched Rusko's development until about nine. During that time, Rusko sank lower into the horizon, gradually disappearing from view. Rusko appeared in the western sky in the direction of the sunset. I would characterize brown as looking and strong at best. Picture 1: 20.33 Picture 2: 20....

Already on several evenings the Sunsets have been somehow special looking. In Irc ( #sirius@ircnet) this came up and apparently this is then that benefit of Canadian forest fires in the sky. I would take a few photos in Seinäjoki on the dam between Hirvijärvi / varpula pool, which has good views in the direction of the sunset. #synty: Canadian Forest Fires 2017

The twilight rays had turned white, somehow just pearl feelings. Too bad when you didn’t have time to stay and watch how the phenomenon develops. Is it possible that forest fires in Canada are causing the phenomenon? Now there have been great morning and evening colors, somehow of a different color. #synty: Canadian Forest Fires 2017

I continued to monitor forest fire debris. Rusko was not very strong this time, but still stood out clear rays of brown for about five minutes at 20.50-20.55. The color was more pale purple than 1.9. the cloud I observed was intense pink. The contrast and saturation of the images have been enhanced to make the rays stand out better. #synty: Canadian Forest Fires 2017

The formation of rays was probably related to forest fires in Canada. #synty: Canadian Forest Fires 2017

On the way home at about 8:25 p.m., I noticed that the sky in the direction of the sunset was yellow in the lower intensity and began to turn red higher. The intense yellow clouds gave the impression that it was a higher item. The clouds were somewhat reminiscent of type I pearls. A little later, at home, I stayed to follow Rusko's development. Still low to intense yellow and higher to intense pink above. Around 20.45-50, there seemed to be clear rays in Rusko as well. Or it was hard to say there were parallel cloud streaks that just agreed with the perspective point. At 20.55 the play sta...

A handsome red afterglow after sunset. This is also likely to be associated with forest fires behind the great water. #synty: Canadian Forest Fires 2017

In the morning, when the lamp was burning, attention was drawn to the strangely reddish environment. The buildings and trees looked strangely colored. The explanation seemed to be in the sky on the east side. Would this now be the same forest fire browning that has been talked about in recent days. Personally, I don’t remember experiencing a similar morning. The pictures on the phone managed to be slightly overexposed from below. In braiding, I am especially right when I notice rays coming from the direction of the sun. The sun itself was still below the horizon. Ruksin volcano brown when I di...

BRIGHTLY COLORED EVENING BLOCK.3.9 I watched the colors of the setting sun from the window and as the colors of the one increased I had to take the camera and go out to take pictures. I haven’t seen such a wildly colored sunset in a while. I wonder if it's the result of forest fires in Canada. At the same time, I heard about them ... #synty: Canadian Forest Fires 2017
