Visibility II / V
A nice aurora borealis was interrupted last night, not because of a lack of auroras, but because of cloud cover. Fire was visible on the Tampere camera at the time, but Jyväskylä was under a thick cloud.
For this night, we had to move away from the light pollution to Sysmä. I wish we could have watched the end of the week plays here instead of the city's light pollution. There were no high expectations for tonight's repos, as the values didn't look very good. There were also plenty of snow showers and clouds.
But no matter what, bz started plunging into the red and the cameras started showing fire. A dim arc was indeed found in the northern sky. I didn't expect either, but just before I went to bed it started to look better. The aurora borealis got really hot and fine rays were visible. Despite the clouds, it was nice to watch this, even though the lights stayed quite low and the better show didn't last more than a quarter of an inch longer. What else will this spring bring?
