Rocket-related clouds - 16.2.2016 at 20.05 Kokkola Observation number 48982

Visibility III / V

It would be exciting to stand in the field in the light of the moon and watch the launch of this rocket live from the phone! The sky was slightly cloudy and in the north a slight northern lights, so the visibility was not the best. With my eyes close, I tried to blink in the direction I had seen shots before. After a while, the side eye separated from the center of the fog a shimmering "cloud" that moved surprisingly fast. I got exposed to a few frames with 8-second exposures combined in the picture. In the RAW editor, I used a dehaze filter. The picture also shows a partial magnification, from which you can see that the object is advancing in two pieces.

Onnittelut! Mahtava havainto, selkeä rariteetti.

Hienoa kun sait kuvattua ja pari muutakin on saanut !

Yritin katsoa näkyisikö Hesassa omassa tulipallokamerassa (joskus on näkynyt laukaisu tuolta), mutta vaikka olikin aika selkeää niin oli pahassa "töhnässä" kameransuojaikkuna.
