Clearly visible night shining clouds - 19.8.2015 at 00.00 Lahti Observation number 54622

Visibility III / V

Tuomo Leppänen, Lahden Ursa

I missed not updating this finding last fall. Now as I was browsing the pictures, I thought it was good to share because I don’t know how commonly night clouds and northern lights illuminating are observed at the same time. The night clouds were very close to the horizon and the northern lights were just green gauze, but still.
