Clearly visible night shining clouds - 7.7.2022 at 00.58 - 7.7.2022 at 03.10 Helsinki Observation number 107512

Visibility III / V

Noise, clear in the northeast, dim belt in the north.

Edit. First, a sharp-edged belt was clearly visible in the northeast (picture 2). A faint belt stood out in the north. The area between the northwest and the north started to rise so quickly that I shortened the exposure time. I was the last one outside to photograph the group of waves above the roofs at 1:20 (photo 1). The display just expanded and expanded and at two o'clock the window view to the north was full of belts.

Edit 2. And it continued. To the north at 3:07 (picture 6).
