I was waiting for the northern lights to appear and the camera was placed on a tripod until suddenly a strange light phenomenon appeared in the sky so I started to shoot those twenty images I flipped. later I found out it was a Russian Rocket Launcher

This sight came as a surprise. On the autumn-dark beach, fully focused on taking pictures of the Milky Way, and when the exposure had begun, the light-splitting light phenomenon, which had caused almost slag, could strike the eyes and could not be grasped and processed at first. When the initial shock had come to an end, he realized that there was a light phenomenon to be exposed, so the orbital exposures were allowed to stay momentarily. The tripod was moved by a few meters to a better position against the water, and it was clear that the fast-moving subject could be caught only by reducing t...

The builder's flight was recorded in his own celestial camera. I wish I had been in the yard ...

There was a rush to dig into the camera backpack in the parking lot of the scene when I saw something brightening in the pitch black sky. I had dreamed that sometimes I would be able to see live the launch of a rocket at this very stage. Didn't have to go far from home. #raketti

Foorumilla liikaa hyviä rakettikuvia, tässä surkeampi. Olin träkkeriä kasaamassa sallatunturilla niin sivusilmällä näkyi kirkas komeettamainen ilmiö. Kämäisen videon otin siitä surkeilla asetuksilla. Tässä yksittäisruutu pilvenraosta. 20s jälkeen tuo kirkastui merkittävästi

I was filming the stars when I suddenly spotted this rocket in the sky. The rocket ran northeast toward North Repu, digging another lens that happened to be 70-200mm. For I managed to get this one box. 96mm and 13s, none grooved. Is there any fuel residue in the picture?

The first picture shook so the picture on it didn't look real when it was in nature.

Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

Huomasin mennessäni revontulia kuvaamaan pohjoisella taivaalla vaalean, melko voimakkaan ympyrän muotoisen valon. Otin kameran esille ja aloin kuvata ilmiötä. Vaaleista pilvistä päättelin sen olevan rakettilaukaisu. Se poistui nopeasti pohjoiseen enkä ehtinyt saada kuvaa muuta kuin jättöpilvistä. Kuvasin 30kpl 15 s valotuksia ja tein timelapsen niistä.

A "rocket launch" flying from northeast to northwest was recorded on camera. The same goes for magnification.

First, northern lights-like greenish reflections. Then a bright increasing, slightly greenish ball approached and then away. At its largest, the diameter was larger than the super moon.

Photo taken 23.10 I was cycling and noticed a strange tailed object in the sky. A moving bright spot and with it like three tails. It was impressive and I stood wondering for a long time. The Sky Guard confirmed it as a rocket launch. I had never seen one.

At first it looked like a satellite. Brightened and left 3 long misty tails behind. After traveling, about 1/3 of the length of the horizon disintegrated and left in place a large circular cloud. The lower point seemed to continue the journey. The duration was estimated to be about 1min (figure at about 10s). Handsome sight :)

We were on the Siikalahti dam road watching the planets, when in the north direction a bright light phenomenon was visible among the clouds. It moved slowly north from Capella, and eventually disappeared beyond the horizon. I hadn’t yet retrieved the camera from the car, so when the light disappeared, I was only able to grab a picture of the rocket cloud that faded away in a few minutes. He has seen everything in the hobby, but never rocket launch. I had to rub my eyes a little and think about what a miracle that is. The cartoon shows the route and an outline of what it looked like. There were...

We were admiring and photographing the Milky Way in Pyhäranta, Rohdais, when in the middle of everything we saw behind us our backs a strange, dazzling silver-bluish light phenomenon in the northeast, which brightened in our eyes. The phenomenon was absolutely insanely bright and very strange looking. At this point I cursed the long exposure of the Milky Way and the 30s have never felt as long as now ... The phenomenon ran low on a really hard ride from us to the northeast to the northwest and eventually disappeared beyond the light sea and forest border of Rauma. The first thought was when I ...

At first it looked like a slow-moving starburst with its tails but the pattern spread behind the houses before disappearing.

The rocket cloud was visible in the images of the Hankasalmi Observatory's allsky camera in the low northeastern north sky. The minute exposures took a long time.

9.9.2021 at 23.06 - 23.08 - Posio (V)

At first, the light that looked like a star had a small tail. The tail quickly lengthened and the “aura” widened. After about a minute, the aura disappeared and the whole phenomenon turned into a large ball of light, about the size of two full moons. The white light spread hazy and the whole phenomenon disappeared into the northern horizon.
