Quiet aurora arc - 8.9.2022 at 23.20 - 9.9.2022 at 00.05 Muonio Observation number 109205

Visibility II / V

A little before midnight, I peeked out and there were so many people there. And for once a relatively clear sky. It's been cloudy and hazy this fall and summer, so I haven't really gotten any snap shots. These were in place at the time, the movement can be seen in the pictures, but not much was visible with the naked eye. I expected that they would have risen to the zenith, but they didn't and there were no colors. At first it was quite bright green. Otherwise, it faded quickly. Once I saw a flash of movement and the shutter was open just then. Is it a fireball, at least it was significantly brighter than the satellites. Let the experts decide. Let's still have a decent camera with which to shoot repos. Must be written to Santa Claus.????

Satelliititkin voivat olla huomattavan kirkkaita kun aurinko heijastuu niistä sopivasti.
Tämäkin näyttää enemmän satelliitilta kuin tähdenlennolta.

Kuvat ovat kyllä hienoja kamerasta riippumatta.

Kiitos Tapio kommentlstasi. Mie ihan suosiolla uskon arviosi oikeaksi, satelliitista. Hyvä kun kuvat kuitenkin miellyttivät.
