Rocket-related clouds

Veikko Mäkelä, Ursa (Helsinki)

I wanted to check whether Monday morning's rocket test would also be visible in the Tähtikallo all-sky camera. Unfortunately, there was some thin cloud in the eastern direction, but the rocket cloud stands out for 10 minutes as a bluish-white glow right at the forest border. Because of the clouds, it is a bit difficult to distinguish when the rocket cloud appears and disappears.

I had to open the curtains of the hotel room very late. Soyuz-2.1b (most likely) carried a new Glonass system orbiter into orbit and had drawn quite a bright line of abandonment in the sky. When the sun was rising, the phenomenon was quite bright against the rest of the sky. The photoshoot went really wrong, tripod at home and hurry for breakfast and poor eyesight in style (clear-clear...). It was a nice memory after all.

The strange light phenomenon from the morning surprised with its brightness. It wasn't even related to the rising of the sun, but to the rocket launch.

I noticed a very bright point in the eastern sky and around it, as it were, a circle of gas. The bright spot disappeared after a while and the gas ring began to disperse into a circle. I suspected the sighting to be a launch of a rocket etc. from behind the eastern border.

A greenish pale spiral that had a halo phenomenon at first, which expanded and expanded until it disappeared. A bright spot in the middle like a star. Would it be a rocket? The spiral lasted for a long time, gradually only getting bigger and finally disappearing.

Driving to work in the morning, I saw a special light phenomenon that I have never seen in the sky. There is no smell what it could have been, because the moon was on the other side of the sky. The phenomenon dissipated quite quickly in about 2 minutes
