Half-sky auroras

Jukka Kytömäki

These northern lights started with a bright arc in the northwest that I didn’t have time to describe. When I got out, there was a full flicker in the sky. Of these, I don’t know if they were flaming or fluttering, etc. (video). At the same time, the moon had strange ravines that appeared for a while (Fig.1). After this show, the repos of the north began to move with varying brightness and colors. Everything went fast and I didn’t have time to make any adjustments to the camera. Korona visited several times and tried to spread a little to the south. Whether it was a quick movement that took hal...

After a quiet start, the corona appeared and the movement was quite rapid. Handsome shapes and brightness variation. The moonlight and gauze clouds slightly disturbed the filming. In the final stage, strong movement in the north direction

From the beginning it went quietly, but the dunes also to the east. The dims were mostly until midnight. After that, a powerful and bright movement in the sky began. Crown several times and in bright colors. I wandered the yard in many directions. There were another hundred images in 5 hours. Image order is reversed.

All-sky aurora

10.9.2021 at 22.50 - 01.00 - Kolari, Hannukainen (V)
Jukka Kytömäki

There were long-lasting repos and variation from side to side. Between the greenery of the whole sky bridge as seen; also to the south. As I left the bridge, the camera tripod crashed into the railing, and immediately there was a loud roar and a huge splash. Immediately looking across the railing, I saw such a large animal (bear) that came under the bridge and quickly crossed the Äkäsjoki River, leaving for the bush on the opposite shore. I continued to shoot near the cottage.

Jukka Kytömäki

This time, the brightest of the summer came, which only improved over the morning and eventually rose above the zenith. Images now in reverse order. More than a hundred pictures and a few changes of place. The ensemble was complemented by the presence of the lunar sickle.

Bright night shining clouds

Appropriately clouds, clouds and again clouds. Fortunately, not a nuisance until. The moonlight would also illuminate comfortably. The lens also fogged twice. Go to tobacco already unless you stay until morning. The clouds also faded so gently.

It started well even today, but even if it is still late. This has already become a habit, so many nights are watched. When it ends well, summer turns dark.

Bright night shining clouds

Jukka Kytömäki

Handsome and bright night clouds in the sky again. The lower clouds, however, disturbed the central area of the video, where the belts in place and the fast-moving waves cruised. Thinner norm clouds could also be accommodated. Even great details came in a few pictures.

Clearly visible night shining clouds

Jukka Kytömäki

Again, they illuminate. Started before midnight dim, but Cloudiness prevented filming. As the clouds receded, there was already a movement. From the northeast rose a herringbone pattern and a camera to shoot images. When the clouds arrived again, the pattern of bones also disintegrated.

Eye-catching night shining clouds

20.7.2021 at 23.40 - 03.15 - Mäntyharju (V)
Jukka Kytömäki

The evenings get dark and the night clouds shine almost all over the sky. The midnight belts were long lasting, but waves and streaks occasionally appeared in the mix. My pictures are in chronological order. In the picture, the two cross stripes in the middle seem to break the belt stripes. The ripple of some sort is probably on the same level. In Figure five, there are several as if they were like a hole cloud. After my description, the sky is still occupied by belts far south.

Clear and bright ribbon-like belts. These are nice to follow and this is how summer nights are put to good use. The last image is processed by Sharpen ½ (Unsharp Mask).
