One halo form

8.4.2021 at 19.50 - Laukaa (I)
Saara Tuohimetsä

In the bird tower of the mountain on an evening trip. Bright side sun at the top of a cloud at sunset. There seemed to be quite a long way to 22 side sun, probably because the sun is so low?

Kuun kehä

The beautiful perimeter of the moon on Palm Sunday evening. Growing convex moon 90% (2 p.m.).

In the evening 10.1. the full moon half-shadow eclipse went unnoticed due to other chores (pity as it would have been clear). But at night the Moon had really colorful and multiple perimeter rings. There would be room for improvement in photography skills - a difficult target. (Moon near Pollux on the night of 10./11.1.)

Quiet aurora arc

31.8.2019 at 23.30 - 01.00 - Viitasaari (II)
Saara Tuohimetsä

Finnish Nature Day and its evening were celebrated on the beach. The Northern Lights play began as a bright glow in the low northern sky, the perception of which was disturbed by the clouds. After the arc was activated to wrinkle about a quarter, it was possible to distinguish between green and blue rays with the naked eye. A calm arch was still in the sky when he went to sleep.

From the photo archive, winter is the spring month.

Several halo forms

Niks naks grabbed by car. The halos did look much better in nature, although they were not very bright. Especially that zyk is quite non-existent in the picture, but it wasn't hard to notice live at all and it was a color. It faded before I could get the picture sizzling, Mokoma. Heat 7.5 degrees.

Primary rainbow

2.8.2018 at 21.50 - Kannonkoski (IV)
Saara Tuohimetsä

A loud thunderstorm in the evening. Lightning own observation. Came cottage, so I was almost late to see this double arch. Meanwhile, great lightning, but the image did not stick. A girl from Saarijärvi had shared a great video in Iltalehti entitled "In Central Finland, two magnificent natural phenomena were seen in the sky at the same time" https://www.iltalehti.fi/iltv-lukijan-videot/201808030081604_wi.shtml

At least 10 lightning strikes seen

2.8.2018 at 18.00 - 18.40 - Kannonkoski (IV)
Saara Tuohimetsä

The flowering in the lake was short-lived when it started to hear quite a pounding. It was time on the beach to try the first flash image until the rain reached. And after all, that one-finger index finger managed to sync with the flash when there was no tuned support for longer exposures. Later in the evening a double rainbow and a gorgeous glitter. Whether it would be the same storm or whether it would count as its own thunder. The situation did not come so closely monitored when there was better things to do in the cottage.

Total lunar eclipse

27.7.2018 at 23.30 - 01.25 - Laukaa (IV)
Saara Tuohimetsä

But where is the Moon? Be confusing when a good place to watch the lunar eclipse was supposedly chosen and the guy didn’t start to show up. I would then swim swimming while waiting for it. Suddenly on the beach, it was noticed that it was looming. The perfect phase was seen in a couple of minutes until the edge began to dawn. Great sight! Images taken at 0:10, 0:20, 0:33, 0:46 and 1:19. Bright night clouds that night, but they ended up pretty much under the clouds.

Eye-catching night shining clouds

26.7.2018 at 00.00 - 02.50 - Viitasaari (V)
Saara Tuohimetsä

After empty nights, there was more to watch than watching moths and bats. The observation started from Viitasaari, from where we stopped to capture a picture of the Hännilänsalmi bridgehead. Unfortunately, the drive of less than a hundred kils of the four-way road was to the south, which had to hang in the side window and splash pictures backwards. But no matter when it was funny, it was so warm Huju from the window (compared to the winter halo shots). However, the night clouds were still visible in Laukaa and even better. Really beautiful sky and quite long belts.

Good morning Sun! Good morning teal, scab, red breast and finch!

Maan varjo

Saara Tuohimetsä

The morning shadow of the Earth and a lovely pink backdrop that, of course, doesn’t look like anything on a cell phone image. This became a beautiful, bright day. The sunrise could have been at 6 p.m.

Gray and not at all as hilarious the mood as the day before, even though I saw the first misery of spring.

Kehä

Saara Tuohimetsä

Pretty nice looking clouds of color and a fun elf hat cloud. Sometimes an almost complete perimeter around the sun. Earlier in the day, migratory birds and halos were watched.

I was in a bird tower greeting gulls and a feather jump in the spring as this halo play began to develop. Of course, the tower did not even have a cell phone in addition to the telephoto lens, so that brightness that approximates the four-fabric horizon was not captured. However, I’ll put a tick on that 46 pool side, though I’m not quite sure if it was the bright right one for sure. Once I've only seen it, so can't be sure. For my part, the tick can be removed if there is not a solid enough observation :) Similarly, there was some meta on the edges of the side suns and the horizon ring...

On the way to work, the driver was again hanging over the car window with raps. It should probably be understood to take a back seat from the side of the morning sun, when there have been so many things to cram so many times now.

A wonderful sun pillar. He would have gotten some great pictures of this sunrise, but had to settle for cell phone raps from the car window. Temperature at 7:40 -25.2C.
