Clearly visible night shining clouds - 5.7.2022 at 01.01 - 5.7.2022 at 02.37 Helsinki Observation number 107473

Visibility III / V

Noise, in the cracks of the normal clouds, there are light streaks.

Edit. And there were little streaks and waves everywhere. Abundant mixed normal clouds caused uncertainty, but the clearly bright bands of the weaving pattern confirmed the observation. At two, the skies opened up to reveal a vast spectacle, with broad belts rising to 20 degrees in the northwest at 2:42. The first picture shows the northwest-north lane at 2:01.
