Rocket-related clouds - 27.9.2021 at 22.39 - 27.9.2021 at 22.42 Rovaniemi Observation number 101538

Visibility IV / V

Sari Pietikäinen, Corona Borealis, Rovaniemi

I had just arrived to photograph the northern lights and took a few test shots of the landscape. The dim arch in the sky roared. I photographed the reflections of the moon on the river when I saw something bright in the other direction with the side eye. Suddenly the camera is there and with the same settings to shoot. I didn’t realize what that bluish ball of light was until I remembered the rocket launch a couple of weeks ago. Which I missed my laziness. :( This must have been a lot of people. Great!

The camera clock seemed to be 2 minutes and 10 seconds ahead, so in reality the first picture was taken at 22.39 and the last at about 22.42.
The main image is a dimmed and further adjusted version of the third image. Or from the fourth, if the main picture is the first: D
