Pääsateenkaari

4.8.2021 at 20.30 - 20.45 - Jyväskylä (IV)
Juho Kinnunen

When I returned home from my cottage trip, I saw a pretty rainbow from the Kuokkala bridge. Over the railings when peeking, the 270 ° arc was nicely visible.

Rare halos

Juho Kinnunen

What is the question here? In the evening walk we saw strange vertical pillars, the rays would be thought to be in different directions. Is it just a sun pillar, or something else. This observation of the reflection sub-sun also seems to be relatively the same. https://www.taivaanvahti.fi/observations/show/54900 The camera was not included, but I also got something on the phone ... As long as you get home, you have to try to get something out of it better.

Mars ja Plejadit

While watching the Northern Lights, a picture was also taken of the encounter between Mars and the Pleiades, which also had to be watched the night before without a camera.

Quiet aurora arc

Enthusiastic about yesterday, we still had to monitor northern lights and cameras today, as the weather seemed to be nice and clear. However, the reconnaissance trip made in the early evening was disappointing, as the sky was full of thin cloud gauze and not even a shade of green could be found in the pictures, even though the arc was already visible in Hankasalmi's camera. Later in the evening, fortunately, the situation improved, but the arc remained low and dim. So nothing special, but a successful evening after all!

Rare halos

11.9.2020 at 14.09 - 15.07 - Salla (IV)
Juho Kinnunen

Well now it was a great halo play for a long time! Today’s program was to drive from Inari to Kuusamo, and on the way between Salla and Kuusamo, I noticed a magnificent 46-degree pool-side car from the window. A closer look revealed a magnificent play, even visually at least the ticked halo shapes were visible. Some of them show better or worse in the pictures, the upper concave Parry is pretty weak in the pictures. Unfortunately, there was little shooting, because last night the camera's batteries terminated their contract and they had to endure up to Kuusamo with just a cell phone camera...

On the second day of our trip to Lapland, we got to Lapland. Between Kemi and Tervola we could admire the magnificent rainbow, which was at its best in Keminmaa.

Penumbral lunar eclipse

10.1.2020 at 19.00 - 21.15 - Lohja (II)
Juho Kinnunen

There has been a shortage of star hobbies lately, but of course the eclipses have to be tried. I was very pessimistic this time after so many failures, but like last January, this time it was a clear weather! One should try to be able to tap other observations into the watch for a long time, there would be enough pictures and observation sites to store in the observation archives! In the picture pair, the moon just before the start of the eclipse and at the maximum times.

Several halo forms

Juho Kinnunen

The halos have been showing quite poorly lately and I have been even less able to alert them when there are no rare ones. But halo april is a good reason to activate on this side as well. Today, things started after yesterday's zero day. Pretty nice Pretty nice, but of course there's more tough stuff in the expectations!

Last night and this morning, in the harsh frost, I waited in vain for decent ice mist. Otherwise the weather was, and still is, in its right places, although there were some clouds during the day. Already in the morning when cycling to school, a pretty pillar was visible, and the same thing was repeated in the afternoon with both side suns. The picture is from the morning.

Venus ja Jupiter

Juho Kinnunen

As the moon sank behind the trees, I went out to photograph the frost and look again for a suitable place to see the moon. That’s when I also realized I was photographing this duo who didn’t show up on the balcony. To be annoyingly bright to let the sky go, it would have been interesting to try searching for ice nebulae with planetary light.

Light pillars

21.1.2019 at 05.30 - 08.45 - Kerava (II)
Juho Kinnunen

The lunar eclipse certainly took the most attention from this morning’s observations, but the artificial light pillars were also visible in the frost all the time. I also heard there was a visible pillar before the complete eclipse, so I checked it into this same observation. Picture 1: 5.30 - wake up! Figure 2: 6.40 - blackout and pillars Picture 3: 7.51 - Have others seen such a handsome pillar of an excavator? Figure 4: 7.51 - Pillars in the direction of energy Picture 5: 8.00 - Kerava water tower

Total lunar eclipse

21.1.2019 at 05.30 - 08.50 - Kerava (IV)
Juho Kinnunen

Finally! This is how I briefly described the feeling that escaped. Years of waiting and hard trying were now over, and before my eyes was the moon completely darkened in the sharp frosty weather. For others, this may have been an eclipse among numerous others, but for me the first perfect of its kind. And what does it require? When my active hobby career began sometime in early middle school with the detection of a comet and led to daily observation of the sky, there were also eclipses quickly in my dreams. I had once seen the lunar eclipse of the moon, but not more. My eclipse observations di...

One halo form

Juho Kinnunen

On the eve of the eve of the eve, the sun was occasionally visible from behind the lower clouds, and for a moment a pillar was visible below the sun. When I got home, it was visible above the sun again. Nice Havis, especially when the clouds have plagued along December.

Light pillars

Juho Kinnunen

The ice age opened earlier, now it was the turn of the artificial light pillars. Handsome pillars as far as near, unfortunately there was a hard rush to the train, so the pictures are what it is.

Quiet aurora arc

Again, the reposet hit the first Sunday of the month, the day when there is scout spending. Therefore, snapshots and the meeting, and after that little miracles in the sky appeared.

During the school day, the first snowflakes of winter slowly rained. There was no hard whip, though, but there were a bit of white road edges when I got out of school. The rain on the road surface had apparently melted and then froze as I noticed the cycling was really slippery. With my narrow-ring fillet without studded tires, I took the trip home quite calmly and decided to deviate to a nearby bird spot. Until a few weeks ago, I saw meadow axes and country eagles from the scene, but now it was almost mouse quiet. Literally really, for running from the front of your feet was a whistling mouse...

The arc was visible again, but unfortunately there were quite a few clouds on the move. As a result, no better pictures were received.
