I have always tried pearls every morning and evening. I guess on Monday and I took a picture from the backyard on the phone. Samsung s21 +

Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

At work, after dusk, I almost certainly noticed pearl clouds heading south / west. There might have been other types of clouds as well as shining in brighter spots on the shore of the sky. Too bad when the camera was not included but I tried to document what I saw on my cell phone.

There they are again. I would interpret those individuals as water ice. I can be wrong. Frost should not be enough. I still peeked at the drone.

I discovered this while driving a car, was amazed at the beautiful condition and how it lit up. Hope this contributes something good to the research. // Markus

The show of pearly clouds of particularly bright and brightly colored, which began during the day, continued even later at night, when the full-moon pearl clouds around it illuminated the halves of the pearls on both sides of the night.

Pearl clouds

17.1.2022 at 15.01 - 16.10 - Utsjoki, Karigasniemi (III)
Tarja Kouvo

As I tried to get to the fell, the clouds started to look special. At first the clouds shone white, and then just as the strong wind began they got their color. Fascinatingly, the colors changed. When I returned under the fell, the phenomenon was the most intense and a little later I found a reasonable place to shoot. In the third picture, the pearls were the brightest. I planned to climb on that stack of wood to get better from there. Coincidentally, the battery was almost empty, the sign burned. So there was pain and descriptions left.

To the west of Oulu, apparently on the other side of the Gulf of Bothnia and thus above Sweden, clouds stained red by the sun were visible after sunset.

Pearl clouds

17.1.2022 at 15.45 - Vaasa (III)
Timo Alanko, Vaasan Andromeda

Keu keu! When I left work, it seemed that it was useless to get stuck in a car again. On the way through the city, the mind changed. There was quite a bit of scrambling for possible shooting locations. There was a cloud of water and acid and even brown. Nullschool showed in the area a maximum of 81.6 degrees below zero. Yes, let's see it at least that way :) The rapping started inspired by that quadrilateral.

Petri Martikainen, Ursa (Itä-Suomi)

Behind the pearls lower than the pearls, the jury is nutty. Are the temperatures even possible? Images in reverse chronological order. Figures 1-5 are lightly cluttered to improve cloud separation.
