Visibility II / V
When the value of the Kp index was predicted to be as high as seven - that is, the best for several years - and only partly cloudy clouds and even a clear sky in the morning were forced around Vaasa, we had to try our luck.
Korsnäsin tienoo was finally chosen as the place of observation, where I was on call from nine in the evening to half past four in mild eight-degree weather. As for the repos, however, things didn’t go as I had hoped. Only very rarely did the small-scale thinnings lasting up to a couple of minutes enter the cloud cover, and a large storm of repos, considered almost certain, did not arrive.
After half past two, there was a fairly extensive greenery in the northern sky, barely audible through the gauze, from which these images (01:37, 01:45). However, this little screening was not related to the reported corona mass discharge.
On the way home, I still stopped to check for cloud cover, but as a similar cover it continued all the way home.
The highlight of the night was when a deer appeared to feed on that side of the opening, 50 meters away.
