Bright night shining clouds - 27.7.2013 at 01.35 - 27.7.2013 at 01.45 Jyväskylä Observation number 16345

Visibility IV / V

My first night cloud observation ever! I have been awake several nights this summer in the hope of seeing them, but have not wilted. The night clouds were quite bright in the northwest-north sky. I spotted them between about 1.35 and 1.45.

Onnittelut havainnosta! Itse olen missannut tänä vuonna yöpilvet kokonaan kun ei vaan voi valvoa noihin aikoihin.
