Several halo forms

21.5.2022 at 13.20 - 13.30 - Turku (II)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Basic hugs today. A dull 46 ° ring and a 22 ° downward arc of the pool were found in the stack, which was more clearly visible to the eye at some point. First image single frame, other edited 49 image stacks. EDIT: Added another dim side sun to the list. Sauri is marked in the square with an arrow. You’re going to go unnoticed when you’re in such a special place and a lot out of the tire with the sun in the pictures at almost 50 degrees.

A dizzying halo play today and a good pyramid crystal in the air. The first time I saw the 35 ° tire with the naked eye. During the coffee break, I took as many pictures as I could. Figure 1. Stack of 25 images cluttered. Figure 2. Stack of 25 images plated and br-treated. Figure 3. Single box before stack.

Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Evening halo, after all, when the halo photos of the day totally ruined it. There was only time during the day to hack and it punished properly. I have never seen so many and varied lens reflections in anyone's pictures ;-)

Landscape image of a planet

3.5.2022 at 23.23 - 23.27 - Rusko
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Mercury near the horizon is just a dot in the sky in the camera image. So I looked at the map at home and looked for a place where I could get something more included. With a ruler, I took directions on a map and looked at the angles and heights. There seemed to be a bus stop on the gently sloping uphill on Vahdontie, from which Merkiurius could be seen above Rusko Church at a suitable time. At first I didn’t separate it and thought if it would be too low though. After a quarter of an hour I returned to the place and it was already there. The atmosphere flickered and the brightness of Mercury ...

Rare halos

Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Quite a mind-boggling 22 ° ring today in Raisio. During lunch, I had enough time to pop outside to get a few pictures. In the second image, a 46 ° ring and a 9 ° ring were also found with BR treatment.

Haloh April in a package with a diffuse pillar. In summary, although the days of observation came in moderation, they began quietly and ended quietly. Just one rarity for the whole of April.

Quiet aurora arc

The northern lights of May Day touch the statistics.

Several halo forms

29.4.2022 at 18.30 - 19.00 - Kaarina (II)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

There were hardly any halos in Turku during the day, but I got a hint that Piikkiö wants to. So I drove there when I was on a filming trip anyway. From there, I recovered some halos for that day as well. The third and fourth images are stacks of 29 images stitched and br-processed. The arc of the zenith environment and the arc up to 46 ° also stand out with difficulty.

A day to go with basic hugs.

Several halo forms

Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

First, a lonely parcel-like brightness in an almost cloudless sky. Then a thin 22 ° piece of tire. Mark the first and second image of the halo as a 22 ° upward arc when there is no reference image scale. Even the convexity strongly favors the upper side and seems to show a bit of a 22 ° ring in the second picture.

My own April series continues with dim basics. Let's see how the situation develops and add to the list if the need arises.

Sun

Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

I had to see and experience those spots myself. With the basic equipment of the camera, I record the situation in memory.

One halo form

Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

A piece of the pillar with the sun already in the pictures about 3.7 degrees below the horizon. So the April draw doesn't end in dizziness, but halo for that day too.

I was a little late for the best play, but something was found for that day as well. You are falling asleep at the wrong time, and this is not the first time this has happened.

It’s just a basic halo beautiful in the sky when it looks really bright. Monitoring will continue if any other forms appear. EDIT: Lasminen's Lasse kindly suggested that a 46 ° ring could also be found there. So I did a little bit of processing the picture and a dim piece was found there.
