Rocket-related clouds

10.10.2022 at 06.21 - Lappeenranta, Rauha (IV)
Jouni Hovi

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.

At least 5 lightning strikes seen

Mikko Peussa sent a message about the ruckus that had started, so we had to dig through the garage door to see if we could capture something on camera. Quite a nice surprise, but there weren't many clear flashes, markings and rustling that stood out on my own plot. (EDIT): Added pictures

Clearly visible night shining clouds

6.7.2022 at 00.00 - 01.30 - Vantaa (III)

Handsome streaks in the sky. A cell phone picture taken through the hotel room window does not do the phenomenon justice.

Anomalous corona

Bishop-style strange perimeter at a maximum of ten degrees.

Several halo forms

Great morning and basic hugs.

Pintahalo

I haven't been able to leave a surface halibut sighting in May before. A couple of degrees of frost and water frozen on the stubble of the stubble field. For me, this is the end of the observation set of the past cold season ....

Amusing. Morning frost and afternoon +18 degrees. 46 in the area of the tire a little sparkle but so uncertain that it is left out in favor .. 22 tires still stood out clearly in the straws, especially when the car was moving, the picture does not do justice ... I still have time to bonga these next week, even here.

The last surface fish are gradually being exported from the winter ending in the Turku area. The neat 22 ring still bothered to look good on the icy straws.

There were no fireballs or anything interesting left in the camera wounds, so I pushed the streak image out of the pictures. The temperature / tone differences of the stars stand out nicely. Photographed from October 1 to July 7. In the stack, 950 frames a´10s @ISO 640.

Light pillars

3.12.2021 at 06.40 - Piikkiö (II)
Jouni Hovi

The cannons in the Turku region did not show any logs at night, but in the morning there were again pillars in the light pollution of Piikkiö's greenhouses.

One halo form

Jouni Hovi

A really powerful pillar along the workday.

The artificial light pillars have returned to the misty sky. Weak pillar formation can also be heard from time to time.

Cloudy weather has extra time to go through previous footage. The focus could have been sharper again, but it didn't take long to spend a t-shirt in that icy wind ....

A fireball at night, brigter than the venus

Jouni Hovi

Fireball followed by 15 frames (a 10 + 8s) subtly distinguished by the abandonment veil.

Cloudbow visible from the ground

Jouni Hovi

Durable shady cloud arch along the 8th road in Pori.

Several halo forms

5.9.2021 at 09.00 - Kaarina, Piikkiö (II)
Jouni Hovi

A small halo play dominated by 22 rings. 22 cough very thin which contributed to the decision to put 46 items in 46 rings - a ring I remember sidestepping the zykis still at this height. Horizontal ring section very weak. I tried to fetch clear Lowitz from the stacks (240 frames) but I didn’t end up ticking one because only some fuss was drawn in that area. The passing of the clouds ruined the great performance. (EDIT): observation text modified

At least 10 lightning strikes seen

15.8.2021 at 00.01 - 04.30 - Kaarina, Piikkiö (IV)
Jouni Hovi

Very handsome warp and bang throughout the night. The lower clouds annoyedly disrupted the filming, but the graph was more affected by the laziness of the graph when it is not easy to see except in the direction of the zenith, except for a few exceptions. The nearest lightning struck somewhere really close because the bang was heard in fractions of a second. As the clouds receded for a moment, a truly bright canopy opened for admiration. At least the top flashes did not end up on their own cells if they even appeared in that rush.

A fireball in a twilight sky

12.8.2021 at 03.46 - Kaarina, Piikkiö (IV)
Jouni Hovi

Cameras on a tripod and obisko heating collars around the neck. Settings for frames and shutters for work. Husband still warm to his back to watch if he hit the asses in points. Two sure asses and one sporadic style swing in the sky. Began to dream and had to go to the lands of dreams. Luckily, the cameras aren’t so tiring and the 60D 14mm obiska captured the twilight sky fireball in the morning south which I only noticed once after going through the pictures. I still looked at the havis of others and after seeing Pekka Parviainen's observation, I took another look at the image folder with...
