Hyvin heikkoja yöpilviä - 21.8.2022 at 23.15 - 22.8.2022 at 00.07 Kuusamo, Juuma Observation number 108756

Visibility I / V

Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

I was on duty at the cabin due to night clouds and the clouds appeared really weak and in a smaller area than the night before. But pretty much the same time window though. Clouds were visible in the northeast and northwest direction.
