All-sky aurora - 19.10.2021 at 21.00 - 19.10.2021 at 22.00 Salla Observation number 101883

Visibility IV / V


When I reached Suhru Ruuhijärvi, I was practically in the state of mind that I could tread straight back home. Lots of bustle in the sky and a bright full moon. The lake was also partially frozen and no reflection images would be obtained. It was really cold there too, my outside gauge looked -12 and on the lake that always feels worse. Even your fingers are always frozen when you adjust the camera. As for the northern lights, they pretty much covered the whole sky at several moments, the brightness just moderately, sometimes with a nice movement. The moon also had a great halo. Worth monitoring.

Komeat kuvat! Kahdessa ylimmässä kuvassa taitaa olla lisäksi kuun 22 asteen halorengas mukana.

Kiitoksia Eero, komeat kuvat laitoit sinäkin. Rengas tosiaan oli näissä vähän töhnän takana piilossa, sinä sait sen selkeämmin esille repojen kera. Täällä alkoi selkenemään vasta keskiyön aikaan jolloin rengas näkyi hyvin.
