Noctilucent clouds visible between clouds - 11.8.2022 at 00.40 - 11.8.2022 at 01.40 Kalajoki Observation number 108292

Visibility III / V

Jarkko Alatalo, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

Cloudiness was again a challenge. Now the scope assessment was lacking. Tonight, too, at a high of approx. 20 degrees, but otherwise the extent was not determined. The opening in the lower cloud was located to the north of where you could see that the NLCs were bright. The sky was cleaner than the lower clouds and you could also see Otavas lower down, but the main area, which would have been a joy, was covered in clouds from west to east.
