A small salute at noon. The pillar and the right side sun behind the trees were clearly visible to the naked eye, the upside-down and very dim ring came out of the picture.

Olli Sälevä

About half of the 22 ° ring is visible, which is what is possible to see at this time of year. The sky was in a moderately cloudy cloud and there was some small crystal / flake in the air, so I put the rainstains of the lower and middle clouds in place of the crystals. Ounasvaara may have had snow cannons running, so the crystals may have come from there.

Nice wish on both sides of the midday. In the morning a colorful zyk and seems to be 46 ° upside down, which sidesteps it. The left side sun was very bright at times. At noon the sky was clearer and no halos were visible. On the afternoon, overcast clouds again and halos visible again. Zyk was a little more modest now, but the real side sun was bright this time, the horizon ring was also visible from time to time.

Hail in the summer season

31.8.2021 at 16.20 - 17.20 - Rovaniemi (II)
Olli Sälevä

Time for the last drop was this summer hailstorm. At first it rained, but then a louder crackling began to sound from the open window, which was caused by a hailstorm, about 5-8mm in size. This hailstorm was short, the water came in stages for more than an hour and even thunderstorm rumbled a few times, two flashes flashed among the rumbles.

At least 5 lightning strikes seen

11.7.2021 at 13.00 - 16.30 - Rovaniemi (II)
Olli Sälevä

Hot thunderstorms. A faint rumble began to sound from the direction of lunch sometime after half a day. The sky gradually receded into a dark cloud and the rumbles came closer. I put the camera on the window to shoot the video and in addition to a few rumbles, one flash grabbed the cell. Other flashes seen came before shooting. This thunder remained quite subdued, but fortunately the warm and dry terrain got some water.
