Eye-catching night shining clouds

21.7.2021 at 00.30 - 01.00 - Ilmajoki (V)
Mauri Korpi, Lakeuden Ursa

The dog took me out again at night, at first I admired the moon falling on the horizon in red. When I looked higher I noticed the waistbands; "What, the whole sky is full of these." Bright belts full of heaven, wow. I had to describe these.

Several halo forms

Mauri Korpi, Lakeuden Ursa

In the high cloud slices, my attention was drawn to the color beach, which was quite low and far from the sun. Honeymooning hurt well at 46 pool-side locations. Other halo forms were not visible until about 20 min later, namely the side sun and 22 the upper side. Only dim 22 tires before this observed from April, but let me get something to report before the end of halo April! The pictures could have been better, but the cell phone and the paperback were just included.

After sunset, the earth’s shadow was nicely visible in the frosty frosty weather.

Pearl clouds

Mauri Korpi, Lakeuden Ursa

Clear frost (-17) again made it possible to observe the sky. After sunset, pale cloudy beaches began to appear in Rusko, which I suspected to be pearly. As the evening darkened, the pearlescent brown became more pronounced, continuing for about 1 1/2 hours of sunset.

From the morning quite a nice shadow of the Earth, accompanied by almost a full moon.

Penumbral lunar eclipse

10.1.2020 at 21.00 - 22.15 - Ilmajoki (II)
Mauri Korpi, Lakeuden Ursa

The clouds scared an hour before the deepest phase, but eventually the deepest phase was visible from the clear sky. Just over an hour later, the clouds didn't bother me either. At the deepest stage, the darker lower edge stood out clearly, but an hour later the eyes did not really see any darkening, even though the very lower right edge of the moon still stood out narrowly dark in the image.

Pearl clouds

30.12.2019 at 14.45 - 15.25 - Ilmajoki (IV)
Mauri Korpi, Lakeuden Ursa

Before three, in the still bright sky, the clouds began to show colors. So I headed with my cameras to the free horizon on Saarakkalanrinna, competing with the lower clouds. However, I had time to take pictures appropriately before the lower clouds completely obscured the view.

Active aurora band

27.9.2019 at 22.15 - 22.55 - Ilmajoki (III)
Mauri Korpi, Lakeuden Ursa

Northern lights were forecast as promised and I left with the dog to check the situation just before ten. During the jog in the northern sky, a dim green arch hung. The fog also started to rise and after returning from the jog I thought I would take some kind of documentary about it even through the fog. When I had time with the camera out the plan changed as the West rose towards the Zenite clear Steve. So I focused on that. Initially, it extended from the vicinity of the western horizon to the Swan, slowly changing its shape. At its longest, it also extended largely to the eastern sky side a...

Running with the dog at midnight, a single belt appeared, a bit like leaving an airplane, but winding. The color also turned blue, so the suspicion of night clouds arose. After a while out again and now the camera included. Below the belt to the east, a wavy night cloud raft expanded. In the west a more diffuse belt / gauze and in the north also some cloudbursts. Pictures in order; east-north-west.
