Bright night shining clouds - 4.8.2022 at 23.30 - 5.8.2022 at 03.00 Mäntyharju Observation number 108097

Visibility IV / V

Antti Taskinen, Joensuun Seulaset

I followed the display of bright and sometimes even eye-catching night clouds throughout the night. The clouds were quite low under the Big Bear's paws, mostly limited to Bear Guard in the northwest and Ajomiehee in the northeast. Low clouds accompanied the show, but not to a disturbing extent. Shortly before 2 a.m., a bright cloud separate from the rest of the cloud complex appeared in the northwest direction, near Arcturus of Bear Guardian. The last clouds appeared around 3 o'clock. All in all, it was a really great show and birthday present!

Myöhästyneet synttärionnittelut ja onnittelut hienosta kuvasaaliista :)

Mainitsemasi erillisen pilven avulla oli kiva vertailla, että kuinka paljon minulta jäikään metsän taakse tästä näytöksestä. Aika paljon, näin vain tuo ison lautan vasemman laidan, ehkä neljänneksen enintään. Se erillinen pilvi muuten kuroutui irti isosta lautasta.

Hienot yöpilvet ja erikoinen tuo pieni yöpilvilaikku erillään muusta yöpilvimassasta.
