Dim night shining clouds - 4.7.2022 at 00.30 - 4.7.2022 at 02.00 Helsinki Observation number 107459

Visibility II / V

Noise, in the northern belt at 10 degrees.

Edit If the conditions had been even slightly worse, dim belts would not have been reliably detected. The uniform area was between the northwest and the north, extending to a height of ten degrees. The slightly shaken second image is right from the beginning of the show, and the weaving image is the corresponding view from the middle.
