Rocket-related clouds - 16.2.2016 at 20.03 Kuusamo Observation number 49043

Visibility Unclassified

While photographing the northern lights in Kiveskoski, Kuusamo, I noticed that already when the fires were fading, the bright moving light phenomenon was advancing towards the north. When I noticed the phenomenon, it was already quite close to the horizon (tree tops) and it was moving at such a speed that I first imagined it as an airplane flying at an altitude of less than a mile. I took three or four photos of it before it went behind the tops of the tree. I forgot about it in the way of the more important ones (northern lights pictures ...), until today I saw that Sentinel launcher thing in the columns ...
