Image of an exceptional thunder cloud - 29.6.2022 at 17.20 - 29.6.2022 at 18.00 Kurikka Observation number 107421

Visibility III / V

Marko Myllyniemi, Lakeuden Ursa

In the late afternoon on Wednesday, it started to thunder again and this time, looking from the observation point, in the northwest, where a fine thunder cloud rose to the heights. Again, there were disturbing clouds in the foreground, as the thunderstorm cell was relatively close (based on radar images in Jurva). The lightning managed to stay hidden somewhere behind the clouds and rain, even though it was quite intense.

The main image of the observation is a panorama of five images and was shot with a tripod. Then a cell phone photo and lastly a single photo of the "falling cloud" taken with a tripod from the final stages of the observation.
