One halo form

Tuikku Asikainen, Porin Karhunvartijat

The sea had long been windy and cloudless with insignificant-looking sunsets. I was hoping for something more colorful. The wind had subsided and the small clouds promised for the evening seemed promising. And when the sea still didn't calm down, we drove to the nearby Inhottujärvi nature reserve. There was a small amount of moisture in the air. As the sun set, a small, delicate pillar of the sun was reflected from the surface of the lake. And we got to see the colorful sunset I wanted. It was beautiful. And atmospheric!

Tuikku Asikainen, Porin Karhunvartijat

We got on a long night shooting trip. Sunsets were described and post-sunset color reflections in lakes and bays. Afterwards, I only realized that there were very weak illuminating night clouds. The colors caught my attention when shooting. It was a hot, beautiful night.

Dim night shining clouds

20.6.2022 at 23.49 - 02.30 - Laitila (II)
Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

It started moving from the east and the zenith before midnight. These night clouds seemed a little “lighter” than the night clouds in early summer in general. These did not shine so brightly, but there were nights in every direction of the air. Very nice show. And true, as the night progressed, the shapes and glorifications in the sky changed quite frequently and were everywhere. Again, a tense, cluster-like night cloud shape appeared. I immediately looked at the radars of the rain and cloud areas on the spot, and I did not detect the usual cloud fiber or rain area on the radar in the directio...

We drove home from Kuuanvuori with the horn of plenty. Images accumulated on the card from many different phenomena. Button trip! The pollen ring of the pine tree in the sun was already visible "driving with the naked eye" handsome. Even more handsome, however, was promised at sunset. It was worth all the climbing once again. Let's go to the Moon Mountain in Kalanti if you're shouting.

Clearly visible night shining clouds

Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

The perfect, 8/8 sky-covered illuminating night clouds began to appear before midnight, signed but misinterpreted them as abandonment. Gauze, belts and waves were visible throughout the night. We were on a hike with my spouse to the top of Moon Mountain in Kalann, with the intention of photographing the rise of the moon as the nightingales bounced to "disturb" the descriptions of the rising moon. Their extent in the sky caused a slight confusion. Top The nightclubs were in small areas (except in the eastern direction which was a night cloud covered by a ferry ..) and in one of the lands in the...

Jaakko Alakopsa, Porin Karhunvartijat

Recently, it has become quite lazy to put observations on guard. Now, however, when I got out of work, I saw a pine pollen as the sun rose and after picking up the camera, I was able to grab a picture of a nearby bridge with the sun behind the factory building.

Vesa Puistovaara, Porin Karhunvartijat

Our association will have a picture balance on Tuesday night. There were few sunspots at the moment, so the Moon was chosen as the target. The intermittent cloud cover didn't bother it any more - short shots of the eastern edge of Mare Imbrium and also the slightly southern crater cluster: without naming or specifying the sites in more detail.
