Dim night shining clouds - 29.6.2022 at 01.03 - 29.6.2022 at 01.18 Laivareitti Maarianhamina - Helsinki Observation number 107407

Visibility II / V

I thought at one time it would be optimal to go check the night clouds. On the deck of the boat, the wind blows so that even the last hair flies away. It was warm and foggy. The faint line stood out 1:03 just fine on the edge of the brown zone to the north. There was a bit of a curve, like a wave, resembling KH. At their widest, the belts were 1: 5, with a line in the northwest [not northeast] direction. Then they were already gone, the last picture 1:18. --- Edit. There were belts between the northwest and the north. To the northeast east, there were more lower clouds ahead and there were no indications of night clouds in that area.
