Landscape image of a planet - 8.8.2022 at 03.36 - 8.8.2022 at 03.36 Lempäälä, Sääksjärvi Observation number 108169

Visibility III / V

When I woke up in the early morning today, I saw a bright "star" in the brightening morning southern sky, which turned out to be Jupiter when viewed through my Newton-style reflecting telescope. I looked at that planet for a while through my telescope and I also saw through my telescope two so-called Galilean moon. Jupiter itself was bright and clear, but I could not make out the details of its cloud bands. I took a couple of pictures of the object with my iPhone 8 smartphone, which I believe also show illuminating night clouds, so does the observation actually belong to the cloud category? This time I didn't take any pictures of Jupiter itself through my telescope.

En ole varma onko nuo valaisevia yöpilviä.
Yöllä kyllä näkyi sellaisia mutta aika kapealla alueella.

Samaan aikaan kuvailin muuten myös Tampereella Jupiteria.
