Bright night shining clouds - 3.8.2021 at 23.30 - 4.8.2021 at 04.15 Tampere Observation number 100207

Visibility IV / V

Markku Lintinen, Tampereen Ursa

In the wake of the fireball noise, while checking the cameras, I came across a play of colorful night clouds. The cloud pattern slowly expanded from northeast to far south. After all, a small glimpse was also found in the fireball seen by many. In the east, the moon advances racing with the clouds and in the saturated image disappears into its cloud mass.

There is a brightness jump in the image of the eastern camera when the camera switches out of HDR mode at a timed time soon after the start and returns to it at 3:30, which also distinguishes the brightness ratio of the moon and clouds.

The main picture shows the extent of the clouds at their best in the south. The last picture shows a fireball on the search path.
