Other special clouds

Arja-Sisko Airila, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

On the way from Lahti to Sysmä, we watched the movements of the clouds in the sky while waiting for thunder. Near Sysmä, several clouds of almonds attracted attention and gradually lenticularis piles also formed. They were few and far between in the northern sky. I was able to photograph one of those stacks with my cell phone from the car window. It would have been necessary to stop by car, to be able to photograph more cloud stacks. It was just such a funny looking sky full of almond clouds and their stacks. The almond clouds started to disappear around 16 o'clock and high cumulus clouds ...

Primary rainbow

5.7.2022 at 20.35 - 21.00 - Sysmä (V)
Arja-Sisko Airila, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

In the heavy downpour of the evening, while the sun was shining brightly, a very handsome and colorful rainbow with side rainbows was visible for half an hour. Multiple interference arcs were visible below the main rainbow. I stopped the car at the edge of the field for the photo shoot. Unfortunately, only a mobile phone was included, which tends to dilute the colors of the pictures and you can't get the whole curve in the pictures. As I continued to drive, the rainbow appeared in different patches. Even after I came to the home yard at around 9 pm, the rainbow was visible as a fairly brig...

Arja-Sisko Airila, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

A couple of pictures of the side sun came in the parking lot of the market. A moment later, as I was already driving home, bright side suns were visible on both sides of the sun. I no longer got a picture of them while driving. When I got home, the clouds were already covering the sun.

Primary reflection rainbow

29.5.2022 at 21.48 - 22.40 - Tampere (V)
Arja-Sisko Airila, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

The fine rainbows were visible in the light of the evening sun. Between the main and side rainbows, there was a clear reflection rainbow of the main rainbow, which was created when sunlight was reflected from the water surface of Lake Kaukajärvi. The phenomenon lasted for almost an hour, sometimes dimming and brightening again to look really spectacular. Taken with a mobile phone from an apartment building window on Kaipasenrinte in Tampere. Edit. I deleted the video because the video I shot in it changed to stretched when I split it. I don't know the reason. Instead, I added two new image...

Arja-Sisko Airila, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

The dim halves of the 22-degree tire were first visible as the evening halos. The matte zyk first appeared faintly above, but then brightened into a handsome and colorful arc. The two had already disappeared from view. The low clouds rose from the west at a rapid pace, accompanied by a strong wind, and the halos quickly disappeared. The temperature was +4 in windy weather. Figure 1. 19:11, 2. 19:12, 3. 18:44.

Arja-Sisko Airila, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

A snippet of 22-degree tires flashed in the hawk-like cloud fibers as a glimpse of the sky came to the parking lot of the market. On a mobile phone, it's hard to shoot the sun when you can't see anything.

A very dim 22-degree tire was visible in the afternoon in the thick clouds above. There was an observation of the cloud situation for a while if the situation would improve and the halo would become more visible, but that would not be corrected as the evening progressed.
