Sun - 30.5.2023 at 14.00 Turku, Nummenmäki Observation number 116429

Visibility V / V

Petrus Kurppa, Turun Ursa

I had just gotten home with a dose of books from the University of Turku library on different eruptions of the sun and other topics under my arm, when I was able to try my luck in real life. While the clouds were sailing leisurely in the sky, I thought that I could get a few views of the entire disc by patiently observing the idle movement of the clouds. Be that as it may, a really wonderful eruption in the sun had just started, so it had to be watched. Even the clouds somehow understood to stay out of the way.

I will now put this as a memory for posterity in the middle of filming, maybe I will still be able to narrate the animation from the frames I collected.
