Dim night shining clouds - 8.8.2014 at 02.36 - 8.8.2014 at 03.15 Helsinki Observation number 28681

Visibility II / V

The sleeping mat rushed to the night tree, but I still checked the northern lights camera, which had a familiar silver glow on the horizon. Had to go out on a foggy night to knock down standard seats. Low in the north and northeast, a few belts stood out despite the glare. Pictures taken at 2.36, 2.46 and 2.59.
