Rocket-related clouds - 9.9.2021 at 23.11 - 9.9.2021 at 23.19 Pyhäranta Observation number 101154

Visibility V / V

We were admiring and photographing the Milky Way in Pyhäranta, Rohdais, when in the middle of everything we saw behind us our backs a strange, dazzling silver-bluish light phenomenon in the northeast, which brightened in our eyes. The phenomenon was absolutely insanely bright and very strange looking.

At this point I cursed the long exposure of the Milky Way and the 30s have never felt as long as now ... The phenomenon ran low on a really hard ride from us to the northeast to the northwest and eventually disappeared beyond the light sea and forest border of Rauma.

The first thought was when I saw the phenomenon that just as if we had a barium cloud in the sky, could a dream that had been smoked for years be seen and described as finally coming true ?? :)

The second image, whose horizon is "straight and beautifully composed in a little hurry," is the first image of the phenomenon taken during the evening.
