ISS - Moonn ylikulku

4.8.2022 at 16.20 - Ulvila (I)
Vesa Puistovaara, Porin Karhunvartijat

The observation of the ISS's flyby of the Moon went as expected: bright daylight, partly cloudy skies as predicted and the time for the flyby of the space station were all clear. With the help of ISS Transit Finder , I knew how to anticipate and prepare for the occasion better. The rather narrow field of view due to the focal length of the tube and the characteristics of the camera added their own interest to the 'success' of the observation. In the picture, the duration of the overrun in real time was approx. 0.2 sec... The appearance of the object is not first-class, mostly pixel...

A one-hour Kuu photography session, at the end of which I got 36 individual images to process. After a little effort, the rising Moon of the beginning of August was sewn together from them.

A fairly bright 22° ring was visible the past day. Attached are the pictures taken with the phone, as well as those recorded by Karhukamera at the time in question.

Moon of the first quarter of July. Theophilus in the lower right corner of the picture, and in the upper part of the picture the southern parts of Mare Serenitatis - and in between there are many fine details, without further detailing them now. Tuesday night's club night hasty father shot/output.

Arcus cloud

In Pori, the July morning brought a deafening deafening noise. The play was recorded on one of Karhukamera's cameras, from which the accompanying observational recording was made. The video seems to stop abruptly at 05:54:26, but continues even after that. I myself drew attention in the video to the fact that the cloud masses above the tornado cloud travel in the same direction at different speeds and when they meet, they almost immediately cause lightning.

Our association will have a picture balance on Tuesday night. There were few sunspots at the moment, so the Moon was chosen as the target. The intermittent cloud cover didn't bother it any more - short shots of the eastern edge of Mare Imbrium and also the slightly southern crater cluster: without naming or specifying the sites in more detail.

Sun observations from our association's club night in pictures. Warm (+ 19 ° C) and clear weather spiced with moderate seeing. The comma group 3014, which appears in the main image, is already slowly turning away from view - the group 3017 follows in the image on the left. A new comma group can already be seen in Figure 2.

Great to see more active comma groups on the surface of Aurinhgo again.

Rare halos

In addition to the 22 ° tire, a fairly secure 9 ° tire [Van Buijsen]. Several> rare, added clouds / TS

Mare Serenitatis -> I noticed its eastern edge for a more specific reason Friday night. Perhaps the most spectacular in the picture is the crater Posidonius, but it also includes the Apollo 17 landing area, the Taurus Littrow Valley. As far as a suitable mention is concerned, because this event will also mark the 50th anniversary this coming December - and this is the last occupied hearing ... There is a lot more detail in the picture, but this one ... (image rotated 90ast counterclockwise)

The 22 ° ring looked quite colorful even when seen with the naked eye. The plane swept forward, leaving the old one behind.

Langrenus, Vendelinus, Petavius, Furnelius

Vesa Puistovaara, Porin Karhunvartijat

A thin crescent moon in the early evening bright sky - the quality goes by. The Daltons (Langrenus, Vendelinus, Petavius & Furnelius) are certainly the most spectacular details, but the crater Humboldt should also be mentioned: in the picture in the lower right corner. Wilhelm von Humboldt (1767-1835) was a German philosopher, diplomat and linguist.

The rather spectacular fireball in Central Finland was recorded more modestly in the Bear Camera 's shots - but let' s add this to the list of observations.
