A rather nice looking halo was visible on a frosty morning on January 6, 2021. One but was visible and was more spectacular than the picture suggests.

Cosmos 2487

8.11.2020 at 05.47 - Kokkola (III)
Pentti Ketola, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

From the morning the sky looked clear so I decided to hunt for satellites from there on the left side of the moon. In the picture, one would seem to be cooling in the morning sky next to Regulus. The moonlight and the city’s diffused lights diluted the atmosphere a bit.

Moon

Pentti Ketola, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

The moon was near Aldebaran at night, it is not visible in the picture but it was clearly visible on the left side of the moon.

Kangastus

26.8.2020 at 11.19 - Kokkola (III)
Pentti Ketola, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

In the morning I headed to the sea shore if I could see the fabrics still like this in late summer. There was some weaving farther out to sea even though the temperature was in ten degree stages and the weather was partly cloudy.

Pentti Ketola, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

It was bad to try the sunspot for the video, and yes it was found there even though I doubted it myself. I also got a few snapshots, but the focus sawed back and forth a bit.

Pentti Ketola, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

On the morning of May 30, 2020, there were very dark colors on the surface of the sea and it sparkled the fabrics even though the wind was coming from the north. Dredger Harald deepens the Kokkola waterway and roasts for long days at Tankari lighthouse island.

The weather report promised zero winds in the morning and so I headed for the sea. Quite clear fabrics were seen farther and farther here and there.

Moon

Pentti Ketola, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

I noticed today from Iltalehti that the moon will be in its orbit closest to the earth next night, it will look bigger than usual. So I tuned the tricks and shot the super moon at 20x speed.

Pentti Ketola, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

The evening sky looked deep blue and I thought about filming the encounter of the Sifters and Venus in the city lights. Lens 60mm +1.4 Tc = 84mm.
