Several halo forms

Hánno Länsman

In the school taxi, I noticed as soon as I left home, and I took pictures then, so the pictures are bad. Later in the morning at about 8:20 a 22 ° upward arc was also visible in addition to the side sun to the left of the sun. That’s when I didn’t get the picture because of the rush.

I was playing on the school football field when I noticed this rather bright phenomenon. With such naked eyes, I find nothing but an arc of 22 degrees. The picture shows poorly when taken with the phone's camera.

Half-sky auroras

In the bitter frost, from my mother’s tip, I went to the backwater to watch. At first there was only one belt, but finally about half the sky was covered with green belts. Next to the moon, Venus and Mars in the northern lights belt was a view that would have been nice to get a decent camera image. Here, however, I got the best images of the Northern Lights so far with a shutter speed of four seconds.
