Rocket-related clouds - 28.9.2021 at 00.12 - 28.9.2021 at 00.19 Sodankylä Observation number 101536

Visibility IV / V

I watched and photographed the northern lights here, when suddenly I noticed such a thing appearing "like from scratch" in the sky where for a moment before it had not been seen. As I watched it, it seemed to be moving "backwards" compared to the starry sky. It also remained bright for a long time until it finally quickly faded away after reaching below Otava. Appeared from the west side and moved to the right, i.e. in a northerly direction. In the video, I hold the camera in place to show its movement.
