Rocket-related clouds - 16.2.2016 at 20.06 Oulu Observation number 49017

Visibility IV / V

Not visible

As I photographed the northern lights, I noticed a peculiar spot of light in the sky between the northeast and the north. The light stood out clearly from the stars due to its large size, and in a series of a few images, its movement toward the northern horizon was also clearly visible. The first image was taken at approximately 8:06 p.m. (according to the cell phone clock) and the second attached image was taken approximately 1 minute 36 seconds after the first, after which the light became invisible. The exposure time of the images was 4 seconds, with a Canon 6D camera and a Samyang 14mm f / 2.8 tube.
