Saturday morning brightened quite bright and after looking out the window outside a bright halo. Suddenly in the yard and the camera included. Appeared about 20 minutes before the snow started.

Diffuse glow

On Wednesday night, in my own opinion, a very dim gauze in the northern sky was visible in the northern sky. It was better distinguished from the pictures than with the naked eye. The first image is processed as an HDR image. Another directly from the camera without any post-processing.

Standing on the edge of the field, a faint Halo was visible. Yes, still visible. Photographed on a cell phone. There was too long a tube in the camera this time. It didn't fit completely.

Half-sky auroras

Jari Hämäläinen

Friday-Saturday night northern lights photographed in Kouvola. On the eagle side, the sky was completely in the cloud, so I moved to the neighbor’s side. There, the problem was the mist raft, which covered the whole sky. Admittedly, there were no clouds. When I left for the house, the lights in the picture shone in the mirror, so I parked the car in the first rest area and I got one somewhat successful picture.

Several halo forms

In the morning, as soon as the sun rose behind the trees, a momentary halo of the sun was visible. Also on the right is a weak side sun. The pictures were taken with a mobile phone because the real camera had a tube too long to record like this

Keinovalopilareita

16.9.2019 at 21.30 - 22.00 - Kotka (II)
Jari Hämäläinen

Tuossa saunasta tullessa vilvoittelemassa katselin taas tuttuun tapaan tuonne Anjalan / Kouvolan suuntaan, eli pohjoiseen pihalta ja nyt jo tähän aikaan vuodesta näkyi valopilareita taivaalla.

Maan varjo

Maan varjo eilen Haminan Rampsinkarilta katsottuna  Sattui kuvaan myös kuutamo   Kuva napattu kännykällä iltalenkin aikana  

Yksi halomuoto

26.11.2018 at 11.34 - Kotka, Tavastila (I)
Jari Hämäläinen

Kasveja kuvatessa vasta kotona havaitsin omasta mielestä jonkinmoisen halon kuvassa ja jos nyt ihan en väärin tulkitse, niin ainakin vasemmalla näkyy myös sivuaurinko   Paikka niin matalalla puiden takana, että koko taivasta ei nyt kuvaan saanut   Ja kuva on otettu kännykkäkameralla  

Aurora rays

4.11.2018 at 21.00 - 23.30 - Kotka (II)
Jari Hämäläinen

In the evening, as soon as the sun was setting, a small kayak began to appear in the northern sky. After nine in the evening, the sky was already greening nicely. At its best you will be shown at 9.30pm in this direction. The best part was that I didn't have to go any further than the home stairs and the weather was nice and warm.

One halo form

Jari Hämäläinen

Watching the starry sky and it was too cloudy to photograph them until I woke up to the moonlight that started as quickly as it ended. There was no time left to adjust the camera better anymore.
