Clearly visible night shining clouds - 1.8.2011 at 00.26 Järvenpää Observation number 304

Visibility III / V

Toni Veikkolainen, Keski-Uudenmaan Altair

July turned to August in good, summery warm conditions. With the thunderstorms, the air was clear and the transparency good. The late summer type phenomenon in the northern sky, illuminated by night clouds, had to wait for its appearance almost until midnight. That’s when I grabbed the camera and tripod, and went cycling from home towards the park in Kinnari and the edge of the Kyrölä field, which had a great view to the north. The photos were taken from these places.
