Also pictures of this evening's (13.11.2022) fireball. Foggy and partly cloudy weather interfered with detection from the ground, but the Bear Camera was able to catch a trace of this ball as well...

Based on the neighbor's visual observation, I checked the recordings of Karhukamera (8th camera - to the northwest, i.e. towards the center of Pori). The fireball, which moved quickly in a north-->northwest direction, was recorded at least partially at approx. from 21:59:52.

Quiet aurora band

4.10.2022 at 21.45 - 01.30 - Ulvila (II)
Juha Ojanperä, Porin Karhunvartijat

A calm aurora arc/belt appeared in the low northern sky on the night of 4/5/10/2022. The clouds arrived after one and completely covered the northern lights from view at 01:30. The most active phase of the play was around 22:00-23:30, after which the northern lights faded away for a while. As it faded away, the aurora belt broke up as if into "rayed patches" or "blobs" (pictures 3-4). At 00:50, a new aurora borealis began to form on the northern horizon, but the clouds soon prevented it from being seen. #karhukamera

Auroras seen through breaks in the clouds

3.10.2022 at 00.00 - 04.50 - Ulvila (III)
Juha Ojanperä, Porin Karhunvartijat

The aurora borealis was visible through a gap in the clouds on the night of October 2/3, 2022. According to the videos of Karhukamera, the northern lights appeared at approx. 00:00 and disappeared from view at approx. 04:50. Two activation periods were noticeable in the northern lights show, at 01.00-01.50 and 02.30-03.30. Abundant Cloudiness hindered the view of the northern lights. The first camera was frozen, but the triple camera saved. Unfortunately, the northern lights were badly overexposed.

Active aurora band

26.9.2022 at 23.15 - 05.15 - Ulvila (III)
Juha Ojanperä, Porin Karhunvartijat

The intermittently active aurora arc/belt was recorded in Bear Camera images on the night of September 26/27, 2022. From time to time, abundant Cloudiness hindered the view of the aurora borealis. Despite the clouds, the images and videos of Karhukamera were able to document the night's aurora display with sufficient accuracy. The first dim northern lights appeared low on the northern horizon at about 11:15 p.m. The show started to get better around 01:55, when the aurora arc/belt rose higher in the northern sky. Just as the belt activated and brightened, clouds completely covered the sky.
