A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 2.9.2016 at 00.58 Lieto Observation number 56524

Visibility III / V

Last night filming the northern lights this grabbed the picture. I had just shifted to a better place in Lieto’s nautelankoski and put the camera to shake that got a bit of a feel for what the repos look like. The northern lights, as you can see from the picture, were still quite calm, but this flash of about 2 seconds + could not be missed.

Reposten kirkkaus on oikeastaan aika sopivalla tasolla tässä (siis ihan mielettömässä) kuvassa,

Hienon näköiset kuvat
