Pilvikaari maanpinnalta

Ria Susanna Lintumäki-Kuosmanen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

As I left the store in the morning, I noticed a curving shape in the northern sky. The car did not start, but the second picture is in the afternoon at 2.50 pm, when the same phenomenon was repeated and a tow truck was found at the end of the cloud arc.

Primary rainbow

Throughout the day there were showers on both sides, east and west. As the deaf person hit the scene, his last raindrops began to shine again. The main rainbow and side rainbow were well visible and was a great decision for the day when the sky gave anything admirable.

I went out to see if there was a low rainbow. The rainbow was not visible just then, but the mammoths were. At my point, the first mammoth observation of the summer, even though the fall is already there.

Bad-Onninen Monday continues. I looked inside the camera to capture the side sun ... which of course disappeared at the time. I wondered for a while outside whether the approaching cell would start to enter the port or not and would intensify. That's how it happened that that cell dried up. Another cell moving nearby gave a snippet of a faintly visible "weather rainbow."

Fogbow

I made my way in the morning so excited to look out at the fog that I was left with the camera and keys behind the door at home. On my cell phone, I grabbed a couple of pictures and called for help opening the door. Clearly, the fog arc was not yet visible at the time, but later on a business trip at 7.30 there was a magnificent arc over Ring Road III. At these driving speeds, however, traffic jams do not begin to reflect: D

Quiet aurora arc

Ria Susanna Lintumäki-Kuosmanen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

At 23.15-00.00 we got to watch the beautiful northern lights. For a while at the beginning of the observation period, the northern lights were really bright. We did another trip on 01-02, with much leaner results. That's when the northern lights, which could be seen with just eyes, were visible. However, the strong Kalevala fires on the Estonian coast stimulated my mind, and sometimes he did not know whether to look south or north. First picture 23.15-00.00 Another picture 01-02

At least 10 lightning strikes seen

6.8.2015 at 03.30 - 05.30 - Espoo (IV)
Ria Susanna Lintumäki-Kuosmanen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

At about 3:10 a.m., I woke up to a Lightning Watch message. When the curtains were torn, there was an active sparkle in the sky. A moment went by checking the rain radars, piling up the stuff, and then out. There was almost an hour to admire the approaching thunder outside in the rainless area before the thunder arrived. The boundary between the rain and the thundering area was very sharp. For the next 1.5 hours, more and less water came. A few times the water became so loud that the noise of the water covered the rumbles underneath. The lightning was very active all the time and one closer sh...

Several halo forms

Ria Susanna Lintumäki-Kuosmanen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

The night's sleep stretched long, but when the eyes got open the sky showed 22 ° r, the side sun and a piece of the horizon ring. Maybe there could be more stuff in the past when the cloud cover is thinner ...

Rare halos

25.7.2015 at 16.00 - Espoo (IV)
Ria Susanna Lintumäki-Kuosmanen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Had just taken home from the store home and a horrible Saturday rush on, when I first noticed a 22 ° ring in the sky. A weak year of observation motivates you to grab a camera and look again and luckily so ...

One halo form

Ria Susanna Lintumäki-Kuosmanen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

The common cloud area began to cover the sky after 5 p.m. At first there were no halos visible, but a little later a faint 22 ° r appeared.

Primary rainbow

Ria Susanna Lintumäki-Kuosmanen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

From the testbed I followed the emergence of showers. When the showers seemed to be close and the sun was shining, we had to check to see if a rainbow would be visible. And there was the main and side rainbow there.

One halo form

14.7.2015 at 12.15 - 13.00 - Salo, Förby (I)
Ria Susanna Lintumäki-Kuosmanen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Just this morning, the thoughts were spinning in a gray cloud cover, which has prevented me from seeing / experiencing anything weird, so for a long time it became a sunnier day. A 22 ° ring was visible in the sky in pieces, while almost summer temperatures could be enjoyed.

Primary rainbow

Ria Susanna Lintumäki-Kuosmanen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Throughout the day there were showers and the wind lifted foam heads into the sea and rocked swans. In the evening, the sun also mocked as it set and seemed to find a treasure in the rainbow on the shore of the adjacent island.

Several halo forms

Ria Susanna Lintumäki-Kuosmanen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Today came to work with breaks popping up in the yard and actually all day there were visible halos. 22 ° r, 22 ° ys, side suns, snippets of the horizon ring and perhaps even a faintly distinctive 46 ° r. The latter is not quite 100% certain, but maybe ....

Light pillars

Ria Susanna Lintumäki-Kuosmanen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

For a moment the pillars were handsome and sharp. I had time to take one picture and in an instant the whole system went orange.

Arcus cloud

A small and cheery thunder surprised me in the middle of a tired afternoon with a nice avalanche cloud.

Even the last sleeping sands could fall well off as I walked through the damp grass in the morning to admire the rainbow. Before fading, the rainbow was completely very faintly visible.
