At least 10 lightning strikes seen - 18.8.2022 at 23.00 - 19.8.2022 at 02.00 Kokkola Observation number 108719

Visibility I / V


I had already packed my camera backpack so that I would try the opening of the northern lights season after 11 pm when I get off work. After the sun went down, a terrible flash began as the thunder rolled over the sea. After the end of working hours, the ankle is straight towards the observation point and the flash on the horizon was continuous. 10 kilometers before the destination, I thought I'd take a few pictures, because it started to look like the flash was fading. That's how it happened, the best parts were already gone, but I still got a few pictures.

Unfortunately, there were too many clouds to properly see the northern lights.
