Salamointia - 13.1.2012 at 00.16 Jyväskylä Observation number 1386

Visibility IV / V


I was visiting the yard when at about 00:16:30 the high sky flashed loudly, just like a flashlight or lightning, that is, really short. No sound was heard. The flash was, I think, facing west from the point of my observation. When I came in, I saw two more flashes around 00:45:00 and 00:46:30. There was cloudy and light snowfall at the time of observation.

What kind of light phenomenon could it be? Kalevantuli?

Vastaava välähdys näkyi Kangasalla sähkökatkon aikana 27.12.11. Epäilen, että kyseessä oli sähkölinjalle kaatuneen puun aiheuttama valokaari. Näistä raportoitiin ympäri Pirkanmaata joulukuun sähkökatkojen aikana.

Toisaalta salamointikaan ei ole täysin mahdotonta tällaisella säällä.
