I started observing before midnight. The air was otherwise clear, but a cloudy gray zone extended to a height of 10 degrees, where the very weak night clouds might not stand out. However, the horizon cleared somewhat after midnight. The first observation period ended at 0:21. I did another check between 1:35 northwest and northeast. All the images in the report are severely blown ->below 10 degrees there is streakiness, which cannot really be interpreted as night clouds and is more naturally explained by distant dust cloud and cloud layers. Above the streak area, a whitish strip a few degrees wide could be seen by the eyes and in the images, but it did not have any structure. In one picture, however, a possible twinkling of a satellite appeared.
