Rocket-related clouds - 9.9.2021 at 23.10 Parikkala Observation number 101155

Visibility IV / V

We were on the Siikalahti dam road watching the planets, when in the north direction a bright light phenomenon was visible among the clouds. It moved slowly north from Capella, and eventually disappeared beyond the horizon. I hadn’t yet retrieved the camera from the car, so when the light disappeared, I was only able to grab a picture of the rocket cloud that faded away in a few minutes.

He has seen everything in the hobby, but never rocket launch. I had to rub my eyes a little and think about what a miracle that is. The cartoon shows the route and an outline of what it looked like. There were some middle clouds in the northern sky, so they dramatized the view even more.
