There was little hope for the northern lights for the evening, the wish came true.

Star shooting was planned, but the repos came as a complete surprise. After a little movement on the low and after calming down, the specialty of the repos was a few pulsating spots low on the northeast, no spots usually appearing in such modest plays. There was also some glow in the air.

The northern lights of the evening offered a bit of comfort when the peak northern lights of the week were not seen. During about an hour of quiet going low in the north, the repos activated a little at 10:45 p.m., a picture of that moment.

The calm arc of northern lights was and remained in the sky for almost 2.5 hours, with little activation at times. Personally, after a good two hours of waiting, I gave up and drove home. At home, I was then able to admire a really active northern lights play that lasted a few minutes. Northern Lights - Observer 6-0.

The first flock-forming star flight of the observation appeared at 00.34, and from then on, five other flock-forming star flights appeared during the observation. Last seen at 00.55. The conditions are good, of course less than half a moon disturbed, roaring in a critical direction. In addition to what I saw in the pictures, I got three other star flights in the flock.

A handsome sight meets, a misty star-clear field landscape illuminated by the moon and surrounded by a perimeter. The distant voice of the owl complemented the nature experience.

All in all, in fine conditions, I was allowed to make an ass observation, no clouds, no moon, no distractions. In two hours, I saw 65 star flights, of which at least 61 flocked, a few uncertain. I also photographed, the direction was east / southeast, here the two brightest, the first is taken at 1.26 and the second at 1.41 (+/- 1 min).

Eye-catching night shining clouds

11.8.2021 at 00.00 - 01.10 - Akaa (V)
Markku Ruonala

A low (5-6 degree) night cloud display between northwest and northeast. In addition to the brightness, the really beautiful and sharp forms of the play were remembered. During the observation, the clouds sank into only a few guns. The observation ended when the so-called the norm clouds covered the sky.

Markku Ruonala

For two hours the camera was shooting in a southeast direction, a total of five members of the flock grabbed the cell. The one in the picture was definitely the most handsome of the night, I didn't see this myself, but luckily there are good observations of this in the Sky Watch, more detailed information from there.

Rare clouds

Markku Ruonala

A visually very uncertain observation, something did appear, I certainly could not identify them as night clouds, but the photographs confirmed it. Shown very low in the north, the first picture where the night clouds were visible I took at 1.30 and this observation picture was taken at 2.47.
