Bright night shining clouds - 3.8.2021 at 00.15 - 3.8.2021 at 01.35 Turku Observation number 100164

Visibility IV / V

At 00.15 clearly emerging in the northwest - at 00.30 A 340-350 / h 5-10 opaque gauze. Add more: 01.35 A330-350 / h 3-12. At a better observation point, a more accurate observation, ie at 01.00 A 300-025 / h 3-10 bright, filamentous belts above (5/5) and gauze / net (3/5) at the bottom, so that a more precise lower limit remains behind the lower clouds. It had expanded rapidly, at least to the northeast, but was now also beginning to dim clearly in both the west and the northeast. At 01.30 the lower clouds brought 8/8 and it was there. Bright, petty and a beautiful little play that only reached about 10 degrees. These darkening nights are great bottoms for bright-eyed ascendants!
