One halo form - 24.6.2017 at 20.02 Utsjoki, Inarijokivarsi Observation number 64953

Visibility I / V


When I was driving from Angel to Karigasniemi on the middle of Midsummer, there were clear clouds on the Finnish side, but high clouds on the Norwegian side. That’s why the Midsummer night sun conjured up a rather spectacular 22-degree ring in the sky. Flowering couriers on the ground and the song of birds in bright green birches gave their own additional color to this play.
