Rocket-related clouds - 27.9.2021 at 22.40 - 27.9.2021 at 22.41 Ranua Observation number 101508

Visibility III / V

I waited for the northern lights with my camera on the cottage beach as I swung in the northwest direction a particularly strange bluish circular object descending. I grabbed the camera in the direction of the subject and started shooting pictures at my wide angle. the target looked as if there was some explosion effect far away that expanded while falling towards the ground, disappearing behind the trees. The pictures are troped from the big picture, so the quality is not good, but the ball appears in the pictures. What is it possible?

(time corrected, my canera clock looked wrong)

Rakettilaukaisusta on ollut kyse. Ilmiöstä ja kohteesta tulee varmasti lisää tietoa uutisiin jossain vaiheessa. Hieno havainto!

Hyvä havainto ja hienot kuvat... Sama ilmiö oli tuoreeltaan tarttunut Pohjois-Ruotsissa revontulien kanssa kameroihin (Jokkmokk pohjoiskamera)
