First observation of zodiac light of the year. 1. at 19.04 2. at 19.09 3. at 19.10 4. at 19.12 5. at 19.21 6. at 19.28 7. at 19.44 8 a.m. 19.50 p.m. All the images were processed with image processing, i.e. a little contrast added as well as increased color saturation, hopefully did not go awry. The zodiac light is a faint bluish glow from the lower right corner to the left at night. There are street lights at the bottom left — more than 10 km away. Weather: -10 degrees, biting wind, an hour of standing on the ice of the lake was enough ..

Väripilviä

10.6.2012 at 17.12 - Mäntyharju (III)
Markku Siljama, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

During the day trip, I stayed to watch frog boys swimming in a small puddle when I noticed colored clouds of color around the Sun in a water surface photograph! Quickly the camera popped up and I got a few pictures before the Sun went to the cloud, on the water the color clouds looked really nice while in the sky they were not visible, only the cloud dazzled by the Sun.

Variable star Betelgeuse

28.12.2019 at 00.33 - Mäntyharju (III)
Markku Siljama, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Finally an opening in the cloud cover and Orion in the sky .. Betelgeuze's brightness is visibly reduced. Just a little brighter than Bellatrix. Almost flat. And Bellatrix is 1.7 mag. With 12 x 50 binoculars, Betelgeuze is still orange-red. Described from Mäntyharju street lights so visibility is not the best.-6 degrees, northeast.

Markku Siljama, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Nothing new in the west ... so Betelgeuze. The brightness of the star is so close to the Bellatrix that you can't tell which one is brighter. The crescent moon illuminated the sky around the constellation of Whale and Pisces. 1. overview 2.stripe showing the colors of the stars, ie the spectral classes. Betelgeuze orange-red. 3. Inverted image from which brightness can be estimated Photographed in dark conditions away from street lights in Miekankoski.
