Visibility IV / V
Johan bounced. After a long time, a really beautiful pearly brown with type I & II clouds. Naturally, we were packing the romper into the car and leaving to drive towards Vehmaa when these appeared in the sky...Unfortunately, the best clouds of level II were only visible at dusk on the drive to Vehmaa.
My husband and I marveled at the somewhat strange, brown-toned "cloud", which, to be honest, we thought in Laitila at first as sea fog or some kind of mist, (OMG, did the evening's plans get watered down?) but apparently it was also related to the pearls seen, I don't know? The brownish-reddish glowing area spread quite widely.
Naturally, the camera was packed in the luggage when these rascals showed up. Fortunately, I have a fairly good camera on my cell phone. After reaching Vehmaa's sea ice location, the pearly brown still glowed as a pale reddish area in the western directions, - it was quite an incomprehensible sight with the Milky Way. Later, we were able to hunt for an aurora and a comet.
