Perseidit - 16.8.2015 at 00.51 Hankasalmi Observation number 41096

Visibility IV / V

Jesse Kyytinen, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

The bright Perseid split Cassiopeia.

It wasn't a bad night. The combination of northern lights, illuminating night clouds, a completely light-free spot and the August Milky Way did not disappoint. Great night.

More pictures on Flickr and Taivaanvahti also include observations of northern lights and night clouds, as well as a couple of landscape stars.
