Auroras seen through breaks in the clouds - 8.8.2022 at 01.05 - 8.8.2022 at 01.14 Kuhmo, Niemiskylä Observation number 108167

Visibility I / V

Not visible

When I was looking at pictures of night clouds in the yard, I also saw some green gap in the clouds, I couldn't figure out what was in that first picture at first. I deleted one picture by accident, then hastily made something appear in that second picture. The rest alarm came a little behind the train, only at 1:33 a.m. when the sky was already covered.

      Bands are usually narrower, more twisty at the bottom, brighter, and more active than arches. Bands usually develop from arches.

      Bands can form J and U shapes, sometimes even full spirals. The corona can also arise from bands. Bands are a fairly common form of aurora.
