The show of pearly clouds of particularly bright and brightly colored, which began during the day, continued even later at night, when the full-moon pearl clouds around it illuminated the halves of the pearls on both sides of the night.

Pearl clouds

17.1.2022 at 15.01 - 16.10 - Utsjoki, Karigasniemi (III)
Tarja Kouvo

As I tried to get to the fell, the clouds started to look special. At first the clouds shone white, and then just as the strong wind began they got their color. Fascinatingly, the colors changed. When I returned under the fell, the phenomenon was the most intense and a little later I found a reasonable place to shoot. In the third picture, the pearls were the brightest. I planned to climb on that stack of wood to get better from there. Coincidentally, the battery was almost empty, the sign burned. So there was pain and descriptions left.

Anssi Ojutkangas

To the west of Oulu, apparently on the other side of the Gulf of Bothnia and thus above Sweden, clouds stained red by the sun were visible after sunset.

Pearl clouds

Timo Alanko, Vaasan Andromeda

Keu keu! When I left work, it seemed that it was useless to get stuck in a car again. On the way through the city, the mind changed. There was quite a bit of scrambling for possible shooting locations. There was a cloud of water and acid and even brown. Nullschool showed in the area a maximum of 81.6 degrees below zero. Yes, let's see it at least that way :) The rapping started inspired by that quadrilateral.

Petri Martikainen, Ursa (Itä-Suomi)

Behind the pearls lower than the pearls, the jury is nutty. Are the temperatures even possible? Images in reverse chronological order. Figures 1-5 are lightly cluttered to improve cloud separation.

Other special clouds

Timo Alanko, Vaasan Andromeda

Surprisingly, the heat of the upper atmosphere dropped to 80 degrees in the sea. The clouds destroyed the pearl emergency room, but the winds built several handsome waves. Here are some of them.

Tuomas Aumala

We drove a car on Pälkänneentie when the strenuous Stratus in the east started to wave a bit. I started to take a few pictures when the Kelvin-Helmholtz wave cloud was at its best.

Kalle Helenius

My first documented observation of pearl clouds. The lower clouds rumbled down the road in addition to the fact that the view from the balcony did not allow for a more favorable composition to take into account the dimmer huts on the left side of the image area. I’m not ticking off the phenomenon tags (I’m asking for an amendment), but at worst I would suspect that this could be colorless acid ice clouds as well as pearl brown (which is mostly out of the picture)? In terms of observation time, there may still be minutes throwing in one direction or another, but I tried to correct the biggest m...

Tanning in the sky after sunset, which I interpreted as pearlescent. In the middle of the visible area, there were also slightly pastel colors, the area is quite overexposed in the picture.

Pearl clouds

Matti Helin, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

The clouds themselves were pretty weak, the type I cloud was dimly visible. However, the beautiful brown rays fixed the view and the intense purple pearl brown that started at about 4:10 pm was a great experience of power. The landscape was glowing deep red for a moment.

Raija Ollikainen

I saw the pearl brown as soon as I came out of the market door, as well as the bright cloud fibers. The journey to the seafront was not long, but there were three traffic lights and a lot of traffic along it. So I was on the shores of the Gulf of Oulu for a minute, a couple late, and the Sun had just had time to rise above the horizon in the forest (the official sunrise time today was 10.26). Likewise, the brown had already begun to fade. However, I saw bright pearl cloud streaks despite the sunrise. They don’t quite stand out in this picture taken on a cell phone, but this one is now allowed ...

Pearl clouds in a pretty small area. A small area of more colorful cloud and its tail revealed the norm under the clouds of an icy blue cloud. #bongaa100

In the morning the sky started to lighten and turn red about 1.5 hours before sunrise, there are probably pearls, in the morning there were clear light streaks, in the evening only pearl debris, although I could only see the sky when it was almost an hour from sunset.

Pearls glowed in Helsinki. Shortly after 4 p.m. The visually weak line structure was distinguished as such. Edit. Using some jpeg on the phone, some kind of streaks appeared in the image.

Lasse Nurminen

In the morning, in the direction of sunrise, the pearl fiber, which is dimly visible to the eye in a moderately wide area, treated with USM, then came off more clearly. In the morning there was also a gentle rush, more spectacular than the afternoon, but I didn't have time to shoot.

Pearl clouds

17.12.2021 at 16.24 - Kurikka (II)
Marko Myllyniemi, Lakeuden Ursa

There was a rush to make a fire in the storage baking oven, so when I got to work I didn’t have much time to study the sky very closely. That's how much I said about half past four that it was a bit unnecessarily cloudy and so I decided to take the appropriate steps in terms of heating, after which I pressed to wash the "odors from the construction site" away ... By the time I showered, however, I noticed from the utility room window that quite a worthy pearl rust was visible on the western horizon, so after washing, I put on my outerwear again and grabbed the camera. The best blade from t...
