Visibility IV / V
There was no need to admire the barium balls at these angles, and even the aurora borealis of the whole sky could be seen from the gap in the clouds that only lasted a moment. But the sky shone red and white in the pictures, and that white color is the main motive for this observation report. There are some observations in Vähti where the lights of the forest machine are visible in the sky as a fan from a long distance away. This time the light source was close to the edge of the field in the neighbor's forest and the light was easily distinguishable from the clouds even with the naked eye. From the right direction, it would undoubtedly have appeared as a fan. Those lights were really bright, illuminating the landscape from a wide area (picture 5). This display lasted maybe a quarter of an hour, then the sky became completely cloudy and the forest machine stopped working. That's it then.

Mielenkiintoinen havainto. Itse kuvasin kerran sellaisen viuhkan joka pääteltiin metsäkoneen valoiksi.
