Dim night shining clouds - 16.8.2015 at 01.43 Mikkeli Observation number 41105

Visibility II / V

Sami Jumppanen, Mikkelin Ursa

The northern skyline shone strangely - the sunrise and clouds above the horizon? No, there are stars in the sky - the horizon really shines, that is, the night clouds. Described from the inside, moving to a better place is not now possible.

Also included is a possible hint of northern lights gauze, but so weak that I don’t put it as an observation.

Kyllähän tuosta kuvasta pienellä säädllä paljastuu revosia yöpilvien yläpuolelta.

Eipä ole havaintoja minkäänlaiselta aikaväliltä. Tiedän varmasti vain, että tuolla minuutilla näkyi. Muuten taisin olla nukkumassa.
