IC 1396 - 3.10.2021 at 01.00 Ulvila Observation number 101680

Visibility III / V

Vesa Puistovaara, Tomi Kurri, Porin Karhunvartijat

A piece of the most beautiful space ... small, but the most famous and described part of the object itself IC 1396.

Forecasts for the weather seemed completely unworthy for most of the week, but as if by order for Saturday night, there was a fairly clear observation time! It must have been true to try to take advantage of. The evening went quite calmly, without thinking about major worries - the coffee was consumed almost in a pan and time passed surprisingly quickly.

Observations were made at several sites, both at the observatory and remotely. In the "Picture of the Hour" last night's giveaway of Elephant's tip and its surroundings.
