Clearly visible night shining clouds - 5.8.2022 at 00.26 Ruokolahti Observation number 108073

Visibility III / V

Emma Bruus, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

There were clearly illuminating night clouds echoing in the northern horizon. Today, the tournament endurance is not enough for anything more sophisticated, so I slapped the phone on the edge of the far-rotten pallet to record the set. Apparently, with this kind of emergency photography set, you can already get a pretty good result.

Ihan hyvää jälkeä on tehnyt tuo puhelimesi. Minulla yökuvausta hoiteli Vuokatissa actionkamera. Yksittäiskuvat ovat sangen kohinaisia, mutta kameran tekemä mp4 -timelapse ihan siedettävä ja havainnollistava.
