Markku Siljama, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

On the excursion to Suomenlinna, a weak 22r. At the same time, I noticed an American support ship in Hernesaari and when the halo didn't clear up either, the journey continued towards Hernesaari.. The weather is hot and humid.

The situation picture before 19:00 said that a thundercloud had arrived from the west over Vuohijärvi. There was no way I could get there in time, so I quickly drove 20 km further east to the village of Kinni. The choice was right. I followed the passing thundercloud for an hour. Tens of lightning and gusts of wind and the cloud continued to the east. 1. the leading edge of the cloud 2. back edge 3. shooting location under the power line, safe?..hmm 4.back edge 5.weak bit of rainbow After the 6th thunder passed, clouds of smoke rose from the horizon, but rather clouds of water vapor rising fro...

Reflected sunbeams

30.7.2022 at 21.00 - Kouvola (III)
Markku Siljama, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Driving home from Cygnus, I followed bright reflected cloud rays around Multamäki. They were visible about 10 km away. Directly to the west was the Pyhäjärvi of Jaala, 15 km away, which probably caused the rays. #cygnus2022kouvola

Bright night shining clouds

29.7.2022 at 00.15 - 02.00 - Mäntyharju (IV)
Markku Siljama, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Bright night clouds in the low northwest-northeast sky. At first behind the clouds, but then the sky cleared. Mutely beautiful. The last picture is Jupiter in the east. Weather warm, mild wind. Edit: the play focused on the northwest. In the northeast, nothing, except very low, behind the low clouds, the nightingales were chirping. I still went outside at 2:30 and the night clouds seemed to be still getting brighter. The clouds had risen higher and stretched all the way to the west.

Other storm phenomenon

Markku Siljama, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

It was worth stopping by for an evening coffee at Miekankoski. Sitting on the terrace, it was good to watch two thunder clouds. The first one passed from the north, pictures 1 and 2. Another cloud came towards the west. Distant rumbling, a few air lightning. The rain area approached, a strong gust caused the lake to ripple, a raindrop was visible on the left side of the rain wall and in a few minutes the cloud rolled over with a downpour. So far, a lot of thunder around here..

The first bustola of the summer. Let the same cloud rumble in Juva a few hours earlier. Today's thunderstorms were hard to predict, pop thunderstorms.

Markku Siljama, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

22r was visible between the deaf clouds. The halos visible between the deaf clouds promise possible thunderstorms, moisture and frost in the upper atmosphere, but this time the thunderstorms went in the direction of Savonlinna - and surprisingly to Ostrobothnia.

Pine still in full force. Looking at the twigs of the pines next to the terrace of Vihantasalmi, the pollination season of the pine seems to be halfway through.
