Visibility IV / V

Tero Hiekkalinna, Ursa (Helsinki)

I photographed this dark fog at the Deep Sky meeting of URSA on Tähtikallio in Artjärvi on the night of PE-SAT. On the weekend in question, there was a 30-year anniversary meeting and there was a really nice crowd and the Halo Deck was almost full of telescopes. Great meeting! Exposure for 2 hours and 10 minutes.
