Visibility IV / V
On an epic pearly cloud evening, I decided to brave the freezing wind and go see if I could hear pearly clouds.
Well, there was something about the moon. Pastel-colored and reddish, slightly shimmering clouds. Hmm. I took the pictures and watched the cloud for a quarter of an hour. It didn't move at all during that time, the other clouds did move across the sky. No clouds were visible on the radar, but that doesn't necessarily tell the whole truth.
The eye could see pastel colors even now, and in the twilight a few hours earlier had seen an absolutely divine pearly cloud show, which consisted largely of type II cumulus, which is a rare treat, the position of the cloud was now roughly the same as earlier in the evening, i.e. the most pastel-colored cloud was resting itself in the direction of the southwest, where the moon was now shining.
But, we have zero-tolerance experience with moon pearls, I have no idea what they could be like. So, do you see pearly clouds or colored clouds?

Kiitokset Taivaanvahdin ylläpidolle! Tämä oli eka oma havis tätä lajia!!
Helmiäispilvet kunvalossa on varmaan vähän haasteellisempi tulkittava. Itse luulin aikanaan kuvannneeni vain väripilviä, mutta nekin tulkittiin helmiäisiksi. Niissä pilvissä oli kyllä selkeämmin vesijääpilvien muotoa. Tänään on taas taivas ehkä illalla auki. Pitääpä pitää kuutakin silmällä...https://www.taivaanvahti.fi/observations/show/87323#o87323-2
