Visibility V / V
I was on my way from home to Espoo, when I was already noticing from the front door that there is a nice looking altoculumus lenticuralis. At the bus stop, I already noticed clouds of color near the Sun, but they reached at least 15 degrees.
At the exchange stop in Viikki, the play became quite spectacular. First, there were circumferential color zones in the more tattered AC cloud above the Sun, albeit slightly scattered longitudinally. Then, on the left side, a dense Ac board showed intense colors that formed zones typical of color clouds, and an "eye" formed in the center.
Although the colors in the images are slightly enhanced by exposure and reading with USM, they were really easily visible to the naked eye without the sunglasses.
colors: P, vP, S, T, V, K, Vi

Näyttävät väripilvet! Hienoja kun ovat vähän kauempana auringosta ja yläpilvissä.
