Riku Poskiparta, Porin Karhunvartijat

We went with the hostess once again for an evening ride, this time to Laitila Black Lake. We stepped onto the beach to see how the Milky Way would look right. Well, it was visible. My wife already had camera stacks with me by the beach, but I still have it in the car, so the tripod ... the camera is always in my pocket. quickly get a tripod from the car that just didn’t have time for the scenery to change, didn’t have time and grabbed the best picture I’ve ever taken on my cell phone.

Rocket-related clouds

9.9.2021 at 23.11 - 23.19 - Pyhäranta (V)
Pirjo Koski, Riku Poskiparta, Porin Karhunvartijat

We were admiring and photographing the Milky Way in Pyhäranta, Rohdais, when in the middle of everything we saw behind us our backs a strange, dazzling silver-bluish light phenomenon in the northeast, which brightened in our eyes. The phenomenon was absolutely insanely bright and very strange looking. At this point I cursed the long exposure of the Milky Way and the 30s have never felt as long as now ... The phenomenon ran low on a really hard ride from us to the northeast to the northwest and eventually disappeared beyond the light sea and forest border of Rauma. The first thought was when I ...

At least 10 lightning strikes seen

14.8.2021 at 22.40 - 03.30 - Laitila (IV)
Juha Ojanperä, Riku Poskiparta, Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

Epic night thunderstorms observed in Laitila. Thunder cells traveled both west and east, but none came on or even very close. The rumble was heard only a few times, so most of the thunderstorms were far away, so we mostly observed kalevant fire and lightning bolts. The flicker began in the evening before eleven and continued until at least four in the morning. A few showers were also obtained during the night, but for the most part we avoided getting wet. Pirjo commented on the observation trip: "The atmosphere is indescribably wonderful, it feels like a zombie, the bags are a model of South A...

A very small, dim and modest night cloud play was shown at night on July 22/23, 2021. In the form of mainly gauze and belts. The almost full Moon hung in the shallow southern sky with Jupiter and Saturn. The observation site is Kallela's slave station in Kalanti, Uusikaupunki, the residents of the stable kept company for the night owls :) Photos: 1-2: Juha Ojanperä Pictures 3-4: Pirjo Koski

The moon hung in the low southern sky with Jupiter and Saturn on the night of July 22/23, 2021. At the same time, dim night clouds appeared in the northern sky. The observation point was the Kallela stallion station in Kalanti, Uusikaupunki, the residents of the station kept an eye on the night owls! Photos 1: Juha Ojanperä Figure 2-3: Pirjo Koski

Quiet aurora arc

2.3.2021 at 23.29 - Pyhäranta (II)
Riku Poskiparta, Porin Karhunvartijat

My wife and I were on repo when I noticed with a sideways eye, something strange. I exclaimed, what the hell is that? My wife shouted: it's Steve, it's Steve. The race behind the camera began. My wife photographed with a sage who was already ready with the tripod. My camera was still in my pocket (Honor 30). I fluttered as fast as I could on the stand of my cell phone and I did very well in the cell phone rap. By this point, my wife had already had time to make noises for other enthusiasts as well.

Image of an exceptional thunder cloud

25.8.2020 at 13.21 - 14.24 - Laitila (V)
Pirjo Koski, Riku Poskiparta, Porin Karhunvartijat

I followed the radar rain area, which blushed at a good pace. We decided to go with the man to see the situation from the field. A single glance assured that as soon as it rained, the foot of the rain grew in my eyes. We drove to the cradle when the rumble started. It was a low growl, but nothing was visible from the rain. A few clouds of lightning flashed and the rainy area reached the barn. The rain hit the tin roof with force and the bunker-like barn echoed properly as the thunder roared outside. The rain stopped just as suddenly as it started. We watched the clouds disintegrate and then a ...

At least 10 lightning strikes seen

23.8.2020 at 23.00 - 03.30 - Uusikaupunki (V)
Pirjo Koski, Riku Poskiparta, Porin Karhunvartijat

The flashes were a little too far this time, but nonetheless it was a sick handsome trip! My husband threw the trip into "frouva's possession", meaning the credit was stiff (caused a slight panic). Those all did, yes, but ... but that thunder. That's the main performer. The Sámi chain that eventually stayed louder than expected and eventually the thunderous area visible to us shrank as it asked before the end of the world. (There was even a rumble at the beginning and it promised more than what the end result was.) We packed the stuff and following the thunderstorm map we headed for th...

Milky way

14.8.2020 at 00.05 - 04.00 - Pyhäranta (V)
Pirjo Koski, Riku Poskiparta, Porin Karhunvartijat

A night of asses and moderately bright = an impossible equation that came true ... We packed the cameras, lunch, games and tricks in the car and drove with my husband to Pyhäranta to spot asses. A few Kehveli may have been left in the cell, but identification help from the watchdog is needed :) Some of the streaks are definitely satellites again. We saw a few handsome fireballs, - absolutely awesome! It came as a covertly controlled morning at four, but it was worth the fireballs as it whipped this from this sky.

Several halo forms

3.7.2019 at 11.42 - 12.14 - Laitila (II)
Pirjo Koski, Riku Poskiparta, Tampereen Ursa

There was a noise. I rushed into the yard. It all started with the innocent 22 and the top side. It was the best halo play for me! There was a slightly twisted circle in the yard ... The watch is handed over by ticking and phenomenon inspections. . EDIT: added panorama

At least 10 lightning strikes seen

30.7.2018 at 16.33 - 19.15 - Laitila (V)
Pirjo Koski, Riku Poskiparta, Tampereen Ursa

Went to the chase in the gang. Already during the day a nice thunderstorm began to form, but it took the rites and headed north. There were a few disappointed expressions, but in the afternoon it seemed to be set in motion. It was worth it. No daytime flashes (: D) were obtained for the cell, but a magnificent set was seen. Lightning struck here and there, the streets flooded in Rauma. There was not much water in Laitila. This summer has now seen such magnificent lightning bolts and in abundance more than years, now there is such a lightning record in itself that one must be satisfied. This ti...

Milky way

23.10.2017 at 21.25 - 23.00 - Laitila (V)
Pirjo Koski, Riku Poskiparta

# bongaalinnunrata- and our own challenge of “depicting a milky way in different villages” finally continued. During the day we nailed the direction. In the end there was consensus — beautiful air, good bonga weather — the darkest possible had to be reached. As soon as it got dark we set off with the host. The direction was towards the village of Laitila Pado (Vaimaro) and the lake there, called Mustajärvi. There was light pollution in the sky, but it wasn’t terribly disturbing. I left the colors in the opening images uncorrected because that shade was pleasing to both of our eyes. The last th...

Half-sky auroras

17.12.2016 at 18.00 - Utsjoki (IV)
Pirjo Koski, Riku Poskiparta

The second repo night of our trip to Utsjoki started early; immediately after the cracking of clouds after four. Yes, clouds. You read correctly. The gauze appeared in the sky at lightning speed and then we left! The show didn’t take long breaks — just coffee cup-sized breaks. That is, suitable .. For a moment it seemed that the opposite fell "would pour fire down into the sky!" There were pillars, belts and everything possible. Three wide belts went over our cottage! Slightly different mood here in the North than in the south .. Rushed (that movement doesn't seem to be any "different" thi...

Kuu ja Venus

3.12.2016 at 16.30 - 16.45 - Laitila (V)
Pirjo Koski, Riku Poskiparta

We were coming from emptying my birthplace as I browsed the pages of Spaceweather on the way back. Ah damn, that encounter between the Moon and Venus is still visible today. All you have to do is get home. A man and I from Eura admired that phenomenon — incredibly beautiful! The throttle was not allowed to burn, the road was really slippery. It probably wasn’t hard to deduce what happened when we arrived at the backyard. The host roughly kicked the Persian that "went now to photograph that great encounter" - he empties the car. So I rushed recklessly (sorry Raija: D, they are my footprint in t...

Moon

14.11.2016 at 17.02 - 17.58 - Laitila (V)
Pirjo Koski, Riku Poskiparta

He didn't even dare to wait for this. Couldn’t have planned even better because the moon hasn’t had to be watched for a moment. Moka number one came at this point. So in a way. The “super moon,” a world-buzzing opportunity, would describe, but the clouds held us pretty tightly. I left already during the day to see some nice place to shoot. I looked at the same landmark, oh boys — that would work! This later turned out to be mocha # 2. At that point, meet very satisfied with the home to eat and then banana with the host. Smartphone and compass don't rely on that functionality ... After ...

Other special clouds

14.11.2016 at 16.20 - Laitila (V)
Pirjo Koski, Riku Poskiparta

in the "super moon" yacht, attention was drawn to the special clouds. I have to say that I guess it was the first clouds for Kelvin-Heimholz for both of us! The phenomenon did not last long, but was really handsome! I haven't seen anything like it before, so let's be happy :)

A fireball at night, as bright as a cresent moon

9.9.2016 at 22.45 - Laitila (IV)
Pirjo Koski, Riku Poskiparta

I was photographing the Milky Way and my husband was at the fair too. The man was catching fireballs and tuning in a wish list and I photographed the Milky Way focusing on learning the gloss in my eyes. On this fireball flight I saw it almost entirely, the host resting. "no matter how unusually handsome was the comment"! So was. The probe was again taking a picture of the smokescreen — the item looked like it could have left something out. The race situation was aviais 3 fireballs and I one ... unfortunately a couple earlier we didn't notice to record up with their times. Well, you probabl...
