Bright night shining clouds - 28.6.2016 at 00.40 - 28.6.2016 at 02.33 Lieto Observation number 54025

Visibility IV / V

Matti Helin, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

I had set the alarm clock to ring half past one. I didn’t wake up to that, but the younger child started chattering in his sleep. I crocheted enough to drag myself to the terrace. I slammed into the sky and what! There was a pretty pretty night cloud show going on. The sleep sands shed when I threw the clothes on and jumped in the car.

Handsome show. I described and threw a couple of noises online (greetings to Laitila Pirjo!). The clouds spread close to the zenith. To the northeast lodge one nice rafting ferry and a couple of bright lines. Really pretty looking! Just the July set.

The moon rose and the clouds began to dim. I made the last observations in it at 2: 30-35. I chose the category bright because I think the belts and waves of the northeast / east were bright enough at 1:30. A show that looks like a whole. It's scary to think what else will come from there, when now the goods are in this class ... Dream debt is likely to fall.

Picture a quick jpg twist, the rawit will be left to a more specific reason for the evening.

Että pikainen jiipekkiväännös on siis tämmöinen.
