Dim night shining clouds - 16.8.2015 at 00.00 - 16.8.2015 at 00.44 Keminmaa Observation number 40991

Visibility II / V

Now I have finally seen those night clouds with the sword! At first I saw it far on the horizon but kapas when I started to doubt repos so I came to see these too

Edit: A cell phone hero is on the move again with her cell phone pictures

Sure, these will show up for a long time to come but forced to go indoors before it gets cold just fine. :)

And after all, this boy didn't bother to see when he was completely intoxicated from the horizon, the last picture is the last picture and then the feet in front of and inside the other.

Hyviltä näyttää! Kyllä ne yöpilvet on aina semmoisia, että ei voi olla tykkäämättä.
