Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

Ehtoo became a bit of a regulator because of the clouds, which is why the story about the evening also bears its name: in the operation-closed tube / The evening started by driving to Kalanti, from where the focus spun on its hind legs to Pyhäranta, where there are pictures of the evening. When the fog and clouds finally receded, there was time for a repo set. I inched at the man that it would look just like we’ve had in the sky either a) dunes b) sar c) both. There was a moment of snads in the sky in the northern arc of the so-called dune shelf, and I was also wondering about the very reddish...

Rocket-related clouds

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 ...

Näyttävä ilmahehku

30.8.2021 at 23.25 - 23.52 - Laitila (IV)
Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

The glow of air was visible in Pyhäranta in a south-easterly direction until the rise of the moon, after which it seemed to spread to the sky, eventually disappearing completely. You can see from the pictures that there was also a small area of air glow on the west side. Now there was an incredibly good luck, for once there was a handsome setting to describe the glow of the air :) #bongaa100 link to my blog link to tonight's story

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...

Perseidit

13.8.2021 at 00.13 - Pyhäranta (III)
Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

A difficult trip for the weather. The circumstances were the most shocking, namely a catastrophe. There was fog, moisture and more fog. And they did not relax during the night, on the contrary. Laitila was already comfortably in the tube when we headed towards Pyhäranta. The weather in Pyhäranta looked surprisingly good, but soon after the camp was set up, fog clouds just embodied the place and gradually the view evaporated into the air as fog ... was filmed for as long as possible. The heating of the Obiska had to be taken care of, as well as the protection of the camera body, the weather was...

Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

The air was great, a bit humid though, but quite a passel for the Milky Way shooting. There were more than 10 asses in a couple of hours. I set the camera to take a test shot in the direction of the Milky Way while in the middle of the exposure the sky flashed. A narrow, thin fireball hit the bird. Was it possible to hit the screen now for the first time? #bongaa100 link to my blog https://www.taivaantulientytto.com/

Will it go into a stack? I saw these almond-like clouds during the day, first in Laitila and then in Pyhäranta, where there is also a picture.

Hyvin heikkoja yöpilviä

23.7.2021 at 01.00 - 01.35 - Uusikaupunki (I)
Juha Ojanperä, Riku Poskiparta, Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

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

Eye-catching night shining clouds

20.7.2021 at 23.57 - 03.30 - Laitila (V)
Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

absolutely icy and memorable vipp set! The vipers started to appear well before midnight. Even on the south side, night nights were visible, as was the zenith. The nights were at the beginning of the play everywhere. The shapes were varied but above all terribly bright! In the middle of the play, I sighed that the moon has fallen, -okay, there was a shade on the ground, so a good unusual ... The clouds bullied variably throughout the evening, and shooting situations ranged from chewing knuckles to open "almost clear skies." Handsome to watch and forced to follow the whole play, although at tim...

Bright night shining clouds

Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

a bright play this one too and started after midnight. The waves and surprisingly bright belts were spectacular. The evening went in a peaceful atmosphere, varying the locations. Less often, the driven fog gets caught (picture 1), but this time this way :) #bongaa100

Lightning photo

Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

I ordered such a thunderstorm last year, but apparently the universe has had logistical problems and the thunder arrived in Laitila only now ... greetings nickname "the truck was already ready". ... Ukkonen started ahead of schedule, ie at about 00.30 the first rumbles took place from the Uusikaupunki side and immediately followed by lightning in the direction of Turku. Luckily I went to take the pa-index i.e. the yard index and heard a growl from Ugi. The lightning area moved from south to northeast and the area rained down all the time. At times there were small gusts of wind and a little fa...

Clearly visible night shining clouds

Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

These were insanely bright Nights. The play began before midnight on the east side, spreading from there to the south and north. Again, there were more special shapes in one belt than grapes or mammoths. Some of the shapes (grapes) were very similar to the shapes in last July’s play. Otherwise, the eye picked up waves, gauze, swirls, and belts from the sky. Pretty night, still at three in the morning when I got home it was a warm crunchy 17 degrees. I will publish the story tonight on my website :) On this trip, too, I experienced nice events that were very detached from everyday life :) edit....

Dim night shining clouds

2.7.2021 at 01.15 - 03.00 - Uusikaupunki (II)
Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

The night clouds seen at midnight encouraged me to go off-road and for a long time I have had the village of Kallela in Kalannin in mind. The night clouds bounced up from the east, visible from the north as well as the south. The direction to the west was bright, but there were also familiar fibers. These night photography trips sometimes have fun features and so it happened again ... the trip with its joyful twists can be read on my blog: https://www.taivaantulientytto.com/l/hamarahommissa/ #bongaa100

Other special clouds

Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

In the afternoon I wondered about the tracks in the sky (deja-vu: D) but this time during the day. I walked to a neighbor with picture # 5. There were so many witty-looking waves that I grabbed the car keys and drove to the nearest square to marvel at the phenomenon more. After wondering for a moment, undulatis asperitas came to mind, but I was skeptical about the phenomenon until I saw a sausage in the clouds. So I wasn’t hungry, there was a sausage-looking cloud in the sky! After a while, the sky was pouttua and the wonder was huge. At times the wind was just too much and at the same time it...

Active aurora band

Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

# bongaa100 It was an icy night. As I shot half-soundingly towards the moon, I thought that in 2017 there were similar northern lights and at that time there were similar, shallow rays under the active northern arc of fire as now. Anyway, the play was progressing with a moderately the same formula, which means that according to all experience, Sar could also be hidden in the sky. As it was! Sar was not visible to the naked eye but I found it in the first three test boxes! The play featured pulsating spots as well as insanely high pillars that were blue at the top, changing from purple to pink....

A fireball in a twilight sky

8.4.2021 at 00.20 - Pyhäranta (IV)
Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

I experimented with a new observation site. The camera just took the exposure in the direction of the Milky Way as a small and cute fireball to come popped into the sky, perpetuating the images quite by accident. Edit. #bongaa100

Zodiacal light

The zodiac light was still visible in the sky, but it was a little hard to knock. #bongaa100

Zodiacal light

I went lurking in the zodiac light and it looks like I found it;) A handsome, windless and starry evening, how much better to spend than outdoors. The familiar zodiac light was still in place. Edit. #bongaa100
