Visibility IV / V

Markku Lintinen, Tampereen Ursa

The Kiiruna rocket launch, which had been awaited for many nights, and its observation finally succeeded in overtime. The clouds lingering in the northern sky until the very end kept the tension high.

The picture is a speeded-up video of the brightest phase of the event.

Mukava nähdä tuo koko tapahtuma. Meillä Vaasassa tuo näkyi pilvipeitteen läpi lähinnä yksittäisinä syttymisinä. Tuollaista lennon kaarta ei täällä hahmottanut ollenkaan. Mystisiä kirkkaita palluroita vaan putkahteli pilveen. Yllättävän korkealla tuo näkyi Vaasan korkeudella.
