One halo form

Heidi Rikala, Ursa (Helsinki)

A huge sun pillar with the setting sun. The pillar was quite high and wide. Apparently the ice mist caused this. #bongaa100

Quiet aurora band

Heidi Rikala, Ursa (Helsinki)

The northern lights of the moonlight began to separate from the sky after 10 p.m. A calm belt from which rays rose. Shortly after 11 p.m., the belt was activated and bright and fast-moving northern lights were visible, with red at the bottom visible to the naked eye. They were very low. The pictures are from the brightest moment. #bongaa100

Lunar fogbow

14.11.2021 at 18.54 - Ikaalinen, Sisättö (IV)
Heidi Rikala, Ursa (Helsinki)

Moon and fog = fog ... at least sometimes. The conditions were great. Frosty trees and haystacks- scrub everywhere. I composed different variations of the fog arc. Surprisingly, the stubble field was pretty slippery, so I could keep it from falling off with the camera and tripod. At the same time there was a circle around the moon. After taking the picture, the perimeter was even more colorful, but then another lens was already attached to the body. #Bongaa100

Earth's shadow

Heidi Rikala, Ursa (Helsinki)

On Saturday morning in Hämeenkyrö there was a beautiful shadow of the Earth, subtle colors. I didn’t have time to stay longer to shoot, was in a hurry for the bus. #bongaa100

Iridescent clouds

11.11.2021 at 12.19 - Ylöjärvi, Viljakkala (III)
Heidi Rikala, Ursa (Helsinki)

As I photographed Halo, I still noticed clouds of color above the sun. They were pretty cool, the pocket camera didn't make them very visible and the lens reflection still made its own balls in the picture. #bongaa100

Several halo forms

11.11.2021 at 12.18 - Ylöjärvi, Viljakkala (III)
Heidi Rikala, Ursa (Helsinki)

In Viljakkala, I noticed a piece of 22 tires and a side sun. #bongaa100

The little frost showed the beautiful shadow of the Earth for a long time. #bongaa100

Aurora rays

6.11.2021 at 18.59 - 23.13 - Ikaalinen, Sisättö (III)
Heidi Rikala, Ursa (Helsinki)

The cloudiness gave up so much that I got to see the "consolation repositories." There was a bit of activity in these as well, the rays were visible for a little while in the clouds. Although the stars were well visible, there was something in the sky disturbing the cloud. After all, these are better than nothing. There have indeed been tight reposet on these corners. Then they would be available when it rains or is in a cloud .... #bongaa100

Rocket-related clouds

27.9.2021 at 22.38 - 22.39 - Ikaalinen, Sisättö (IV)
Heidi Rikala, Ursa (Helsinki)

Help, I don't know what was momentarily visible in the northern sky quite low. I photographed in the direction of the Moon and noticed a strange fog of light. I turned the camera at the pace in the direction of the subject. The first image shows two special lights, the second image is a grooved version. 3 picture right after and the light was already different. 4 image creased from the previous one. It’s a little tricky to say what it visually looked like. (there are no new glasses after eye surgery). And I can't tell if there were 1 or two items. #bongaa100

Several halo forms

Heidi Rikala, Ursa (Helsinki)

Now it seems to be the most versatile halos of the summer season that I have spotted. mm. 46 ring and ZYK. Of that 46, I'm still not sure if it's a side-arch or a ring? Quite a nice play that didn't last very long. #bongaa100.

Quiet aurora arc

Heidi Rikala, Ursa (Helsinki)

Your intention was to take hard when you once again pulled the sky into the cloud when the northern lights forecasts were in good shape. I thought that even today I would see nothing but a cloud. Then I went to the sauna house, and in the meantime the clouds had receded and the north was open. Jee! does not change when I back out. I had to wait another hour, before the northern lights appeared. The bright moon made it a little awkward when the sky was a little too bright. Well, anyway, I got the repos I expected to be photographed. At first they looked pretty bright, then dimmed into a mere ar...

Moon

Almost the full moon was bright and visible in its small size because it was far from Earth. #bongaa100
