Clearly visible night shining clouds - 3.8.2021 at 23.40 - 4.8.2021 at 00.40 Kurikka Observation number 100176

Visibility III / V

Marko Myllyniemi, Lakeuden Ursa

In the northeastern sky, illuminating night clouds were visible, which were initially dim and had to be properly pinched before retrieving the camera, whether they were indeed nocturnal or ordinary cloudiness.

After midnight, the night clouds were already clearly visible, although normal cloud cover was once again rolling over to interfere with detection. After half past one, the Nightingales were no longer visible from the cloud.

Kun nuo pilvet aikanaan poistuivat alkoi melkoinen näytös. Mulla päivysti taas gopro pellonreunalla. Pitää lähteä töihin. Teen oman havikseen illemmalla. Näytös on ollut hieno...

Pitäisi varmaan itsekin hommata "päivystäjä" kuvaamaan niin ei pääsisi työ haittaamaan harrastuksia... ;-)

Gopro 7 prätkäakulla höystettynä on hyvin toiminut. Revontulillekin. Käy niin lämpimänä, ettei linssi huurru kovallakaan pakkasella.

Vähän motivointia gopro-kaupoille. Tuota sen pilvimassan poistuttua tuli esiin. https://youtu.be/rT3KcWkhVn0

Hyvältä näyttää, täytyy ottaa vakavasti harkintaan.
