Eye-catching night shining clouds - 16.8.2015 at 00.00 - 16.8.2015 at 02.15 Mustasaari Observation number 41005

Visibility V / V

Tommi Järvilehto, Vaasan Andromeda

After a few evenings the night clouds are visible again. An hour earlier, even northern lights were visible in the light blue sky. There must have been a big storm on the ground. Now it was no longer visible, but the night clouds intensified and expanded.

I still left GoPro to photograph the timelapse, let alone see in the morning what was recorded from the night.

edit: 2:00 The night clouds have continued to expand. I had to try to shoot with big big values, so the northern lights came from there.
