Quiet aurora arc - 24.8.2021 at 00.52 - 24.8.2021 at 01.45 Oulu Observation number 100714

Visibility II / V

It was finally a good weather and at first there were a few illuminating night clouds, then a little before one started to have a very weak arc, had to check with the camera whether there was fog or northern lights. Oh this happiness while it is dark enough! On a few occasions it became more intense moments and then it evaporated. At three o'clock I was driving home when I noticed that the illuminating night clouds were getting stronger and rising. I still had to go photograph them when it was too bright. The dream tasted good after this :)

Ohhoh! Laittaisitko erillisen havainnon valaisevista yöpilvistä, kiitos!

Ks. keskustelu tässä havainnossa, niin selviää, miksi tämä on kohtalaisen mielenkiintoinen havainto... :D

Kauniit ja todella myöhäiset yöpilvet. Hieno havainto kerrassaan! Ja revontulet vielä samassa.
