Visibility IV / V
Skywatcher noticed that a launch vehicle is being launched from the Plesetsky Cosmodrome. The weather looked relatively good, so I went for a ride with the camera to the Luukkaansalmi bridge, because I thought that's where it can be seen best. There was still some cloudiness in the eastern sky, but I waited and the wait was rewarded. The time information of the pictures is an hour and 3 minutes late, of course I hadn't remembered to move the camera to summer time.. The rocket appeared at 23:03 and for the last picture it was 23:06.
