Bright night shining clouds - 8.8.2022 at 00.30 - 8.8.2022 at 01.30 Nousiainen Observation number 108154

Visibility IV / V

Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

The northern lights seemed to steal the night cloud observations, but it was a great and versatile observation night. After midnight, the night clouds began to rise slowly from the northeast. The Northern Lights came along a little after that.
