Visibility III / V
Quite literally, the evening was cloud gap hunting. My husband and I managed to see a glimpse of the aurora belt from a briskly sized opening until the cloud ferry parked its stern in Laitila. After an hour of repos hunting, I went to take my husband home to rest (while he is still a patient) and after studying the cloud maps a lot, I decided to go off-road for a while.
When I got back to the anchorage, a rectangular hole appeared in the clouds again, from which the somewhat unusual northern lights could be seen low down. They pulse, but slowly and in a small area. Some of the repos patches stayed in place for minutes while the surrounding repos moved. Ojanperä's Juha had a good description of these - the spots were like fragments of a disintegrated aurora arc in the sky. I had time to observe for half an hour when the fires froze and the laminate returned to the sky.
There was also red in the sky, either it was the top of the repos or SAR. It was completely impossible to say exactly when the gap in the clouds was a bit tight and there was no visibility except to the north..
