Kuu ja Jupiter

21.3.2016 at 22.30 - Kotka (III)
Minna Rissanen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

The moon and Jupiter appeared at half past eleven from my balcony, and I got a couple of flaps taken. When shooting, I didn’t even realize that with a slightly longer exposure I got Jupiter’s moons in the pictures, I was pleasantly surprised when I transferred the pictures to the machine.

Half-sky auroras

Minna Rissanen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

With the naked eye, the repos were mostly white, with a hint of green, the color is a little better in the pictures. My eyes looked pretty bright, but on the other hand, this was the first time I saw the northern lights with my own eyes - so there is really no point of comparison. The fire in the quarter had already dimmed the fourth picture, and after five minutes nothing was visible. It’s a shame not to get a wider view of the sky from that balcony when the trees and roof come to the road, but something nonetheless. The focus is just what hurts, I was too busy to describe that I would have h...

Despair wanted to strike when the sky was fast, completely covering itself with clouds, but kindly the dark ferry gave way for a moment enough to get the terrified super moon photographed. From the main image I had to adjust the color in a slightly yellower direction, when there was so much variegated noise that pride did not give up publishing the image as it is ... The main image has also been cropped from a larger image. In the third picture, there are just handsome clouds with which I could compete.

Minna Rissanen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

I dragged my binoculars to the balcony, but since there was little view of the starry sky from the first floor, I had to take the moon as a target, and some picture as evidence. At a rapid pace it is growing into a "super moon".

Clearly visible night shining clouds

12.7.2014 at 01.10 - Kotka (III)
Minna Rissanen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Once upon a time, handsome night clouds had to be left in the middle of a movie when Mobile Watch announced a cloud play. There were clouds in almost every direction of the air, much more clearly visible and somewhat dimmer, which I could not see with my hand (long exposure time, hands shaking with excitement ...)

Dim night shining clouds

5.7.2014 at 01.00 - 02.00 - Kotka (II)
Minna Rissanen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

The first night clouds I met after learning about their existence. The picture was taken in a hurry on the phone, so the quality doesn’t end up dizzying, but it shows something. Illuminating night clouds in the northeast became visible as dark clouds, covering almost the entire sky, moved aside, and for about an hour the night clouds periodically remained on display before completely disintegrating.
