Earth's shadow

The parasol was well visible in Käylänkoski in the afternoon.

Light pillars

The wife called from the road and made a fuss about the pillars. There was a lot of ice crystal in the air and I tipped to shoot in the open forest. Quite handsome pillars were visible.

Quiet aurora band

Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

For a long time, northern lights had to be seen when, due to the work, they had not been able to control and there was no weather. The nearest forest as a shooting area. It was pretty.

Sharp and pretty pillars were visible on the slopes in the evening. Snowmaking was not running over the weekend when the Nordic Opening Games were underway. It freezes at about 20 degrees.

Several halo forms

22.11.2021 at 13.35 - Kuusamo, Rukatunturi (II)
Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

I was filming on a handsome frosty day in Ruka's Midsummer Rock when a sun column was born in the ice mist caused by snow from time to time. On the same trip, I also saw a side sun that was born somewhere far in the upper clouds for a while, no picture of it.

Rare halos

14.11.2021 at 22.20 - 23.05 - Kuusamo, Rukatunturi (IV)
Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

Snowfall going on in Ruka and besides the work I took a picture of the artificial light pillars. That village looked somehow Christmas with its colored lights and the moon also had a handsome perimeter. Figure 2 would look like an solar arc or top side sun. Edit. A little later I heard a 22 'ring with side suns. Maybe the horizon rings but there may be reflections.

Earth's shadow

8.11.2021 at 08.26 - Kuusamo, Rukatunturi (III)
Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

Edit. The text did not come to the fore upon first attempt. In other words, for a long time a clear weather and a photo trip to Midsummer Rock where a parachute was visible.

Several halo forms

24.10.2021 at 20.38 - Kuusamo, Käylä (III)
Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

I went to Käylänkoski late in the evening when it seemed that something would be visible around the moon. The 22 'ring + ys and dimly also the side suns were visible. Picture processed a bit.

One halo form

24.10.2021 at 15.26 - Kuusamo (III)
Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

On a shopping trip in Kuusamo, I noticed a dim 22 'tire around the sun.

Several halo forms

22.10.2021 at 21.58 - Kuusamo, Käylä (III)
Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

The halo was also visible on Friday night but the clouds hampered the observation.

Several halo forms

20.10.2021 at 09.33 - Kuusamo, Rukatunturi (III)
Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

This halo phenomenon knew that rain was coming like many times before. It started to snow around 11 o'clock and has already accumulated comfortably on the ground.

One halo form

18.10.2021 at 21.10 - Kuusamo, Rukatunturi (III)
Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

The hearing showed the base ring for some time in the evening. The snowfall had just started and there was no ice mist yet so it was born in the upper clouds because the halo was still visible at home for half the night. The cell phone image fools because it looks like it could have a 9 'ring but wasn't visible to the eye.

Primary rainbow

16.10.2021 at 14.39 - Kuusamo, Rukatunturi (I)
Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

We were going to Ruka to eat when a pretty rainbow appeared in the water drip for a very short time, really close to about 50-100 meters away. In the same way as halos sometimes in ice mist.

Quiet aurora band

28.9.2021 at 21.15 - 21.48 - Kuusamo, Käylä (II)
Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

I went to watch the northern lights on the beach when the repo values were high. Nothing very spectacular at the time visible to the naked eye but just ok in the evening. Half hour timelapse attached.

Anticrepuscular rays

28.9.2021 at 18.58 - 19.08 - Kuusamo, Käylä (III)
Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

I went to Käylänkoski to photograph the parachute and at the same time the dim rays of twilight were also visible. The rays are just fine in Figure 1 taken with an iPhone.

Reflected sunbeams

27.9.2021 at 07.52 - Kuusamo, Rukatunturi (III)
Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

Would cloud rays be reflected? At first I thought that light would come through that gap in the cloud but about 5 minutes later the gap was closed and the rays were still visible. Not quite calm but in some quiet coves on the lakes.

One halo form

22.9.2021 at 13.59 - Kuusamo, Rukatunturi (I)
Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

First a ring appeared and later some time a 22 'ring.

Corona

22.9.2021 at 13.13 - Kuusamo, Rukatunturi (III)
Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

The sun was visible around the perimeter throughout the day. One picture next to the work.

Reflected sunbeams

Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

In the morning, fine rays were visible on the construction site for about 5 minutes. Looks like reflected clouds.
