Rocket-related clouds - 9.9.2021 at 23.10 Puolanka Observation number 101117

Visibility V / V


I came to the yard by car around 23.05 and after a while inside with my dog I went to take it to the outdoor garden. I admired the clear starry sky and drew attention to the northern fire-like sight in the northern sky. I was wondering how the northern lights look tail-shaped and when I looked, this one at the tip of the stand was a big round ball. Larger than stars and planets. The ball was then close to the sky. I gave my dog water and when I looked at the sky again for a minute or two, the ball was no longer visible and the tail, which looked like northern lights, was also fading. The tail was wide and this phenomenon left me amazed.
