Eye-catching night shining clouds

Ari Laine

From the window I happened to notice that bright night clouds. Camera in grapple and shooting from an open window. Had to reduce the opening so that the piece would not burst :)

Clearly visible night shining clouds

Information from a friend that night clouds visible. I guess the best moment would have passed when they disappeared pretty soon after that, but something still got described.

Partial solar eclipse

Ari Laine

Among many others, I photographed the June eclipse. The filter is a homemade mylar membrane ox.

Light pillars

As I walked, I noticed pillars of artificial light, possibly from the lights of a hilltop.

Eye-catching night shining clouds

There came information about night illuminating clouds, suddenly shooting and even brighter than I had seen before, I even had to reduce the exposure so that there was no burning out image.

The widely visible 22r was quickly captured on a cell phone

Moon

31.12.2019 at 17.50 - Lahti (IV)
Ari Laine, Lahden Ursa

The crescent moon of the New Year's Eve, pretty well made the details visible on the border of light and shadow.

Active aurora band

28.9.2019 at 00.00 - 02.00 - Lahti (III)
Ari Laine, Lahden Ursa

At midnight I went to peek at whether the northern lights were visible, at the same time there was also information that is visible. Camera tripod and shooting. A meteor also seems to have slipped into the last image. The shooting location did not allow very large camera shifts or wide-angle shots, but at a reasonable angle nonetheless. Images have not been processed, only reduced. The observation site is also quite bright so actually the green more colors did not stand out properly.

Partial lunar eclipse

17.7.2019 at 01.17 - Lahti (III)
Ari Laine, Lahden Ursa

The half-shadow eclipse of the moon did not quite get a picture at its fullest point, as it was left behind just behind the trees but soon after. Larger image with optical + software zoom. Smaller only with optical.

Total lunar eclipse

21.1.2019 at 06.50 - Lahti (IV)
Ari Laine, Lahden Ursa

After all, it had to make the alarm clock ring and grab a few pictures of a complete lunar eclipse. Freeze quickly and cover with warmth in mind so pictures grabbed by hand. Pictures taken a moment after the perfect phase begins.

Quiet aurora arc

10.10.2018 at 21.00 - 23.00 - Lahti (II)
Ari Laine, Lahden Ursa

During the day I watched that the predictions seemed a small chance to repo. Pretty diffuse but occasionally brightening. However, I got a few pictures.

Active aurora band

Ari Laine, Lahden Ursa

There was a possibility of repos in the predictions and then a little tweaking paid off.

Ari Laine, Lahden Ursa

During the evening shooting trip, I also went to the radio hill to photograph the masts, the fog rays formed quite strongly and I got pictures of them quite well.

Partial solar eclipse

11.8.2018 at 12.18 - Lahti (IV)
Ari Laine, Lahden Ursa

It was known that the partial eclipse and the weather favored so not when the camera mylar film and shoot.

Bright night shining clouds

3.8.2018 at 01.06 - Lahti (IV)
Ari Laine, Lahden Ursa

A peek out and the illuminating night clouds there. Suddenly a picture before going to sleep.

Total lunar eclipse

27.7.2018 at 23.51 - Lahti (IV)
Ari Laine, Lahden Ursa

"Blood Moon" and the longest full eclipse, so it had to be filmed. The permanent establishment and 500 others had been given the same idea. In the air, auerta, etc., so that I couldn't even see the perfect stage, but after a while, a good redness was described.

Clearly visible night shining clouds

16.7.2018 at 00.52 - Lahti (III)
Ari Laine, Lahden Ursa

Again, mentioned by storm bongars, I heard that illuminating night clouds. I had to peek at it and that's it. Immediately on the cell phone, an HDR image (brought out a little more detail). Parallel belts and a little ripple among them.

Diffuse glow

7.11.2017 at 23.30 - 23.48 - Lahti (I)
Ari Laine, Lahden Ursa

Again, information about the repos started to drip from several directions so I had to keep a little eye on it. Sit came with information that is starting to brighten, so the camera is highlighted and on a tripod to scratch the pictures. Light pollution probably ate weaker colors but reasonably grabbed the cell sitli.

At least 10 lightning strikes seen

12.8.2017 at 21.20 - Lahti (IV)
Ari Laine, Lahden Ursa

On the slope watching the predicted thunderstorms, not terribly heavy lightning, but because the water didn’t come all the time so a few really fine lightning flashes appeared. -edit- Added 4 video captured images of flashes.

Along the evening I watched the sky a bit when it was clear and in the early evening there was a lot of thin gauze and now at night then quite good night clouds.
