Eye-catching night shining clouds - 7.8.2016 at 22.00 Kuopio Observation number 55611

Visibility V / V

Ville Miettinen, Kuopion Saturnus

I peeked into the sky at the top ten countries from the balcony, and there were nights no matter what. Suddenly stuff in the pile, calling a friend and towards better shooting locations.

Although Neulamäki (where I made the first observation) is marked as a place, all the pictures have been taken of the Sänkimäki observation tower / its surroundings.

      Relatively rarely, there are special shapes in the night shining cloud displays that do not belong to the shapes listed above. Such may be, for example, thick lumpy formations that appear as some kind of patches. They may also be associated with an unusual color tone.

      Swirls are curved night shining cloud forms. For example, a single night cloud belt or group of waves may be curved on a clear bend.
