Clearly visible night shining clouds - 14.6.2022 at 23.55 - 15.6.2022 at 02.30 Laitila Observation number 107244

Visibility III / V

Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

The perfect, 8/8 sky-covered illuminating night clouds began to appear before midnight, signed but misinterpreted them as abandonment. Gauze, belts and waves were visible throughout the night.

We were on a hike with my spouse to the top of Moon Mountain in Kalann, with the intention of photographing the rise of the moon as the nightingales bounced to "disturb" the descriptions of the rising moon. Their extent in the sky caused a slight confusion.

Top The nightclubs were in small areas (except in the eastern direction which was a night cloud covered by a ferry ..) and in one of the lands in the sky the nights shook like waves. The mountain of the moon became narrow in a second and it was decided to take the risk of moving to the openings in Kallella.

A couple of squares were photographed on the slope and a very clear night belt was seen heading west. From there, our revoo moved to the huts of the home village where the dance of the rest of the night was immortalized. The nights in the three countries had finally faded to nothing.

Welcome to summer and illuminating, full-sky night cloud plays, this is what you expected! By the way, the nights were really hard to shoot because of the light in the background ...

I checked these "clearly visible" because these were clearly visible :)
