Friday night, in addition to the clear starry sky, offered northern lights that began dimly around half past ten but had intensified considerably after one. The same evening also saw a lonely ray, to which many have already referred. Around 11 p.m., its shape became wider. Annoyingly poor quality pictures of it.

Sometimes you get a chance to see many interesting phenomena in a short amount of time. We had just landed when a heavy downpour surprised. A spectacular double rainbow appeared over the nearby forest. At the same time, a avalanche cloud and fabrics over Airisto were visible. I also attach pictures of these observations.

On Saturday night, halo phenomena continued at Airisto. A weak halo around the low sun with a fairly colorful spot on the right side. At the same time, there was a longer but also colorful convex arch in the high sky. This part only appears in the second image, where the camera was pointed fairly straight up.
