Milky way - 22.9.2017 at 21.47 Kiiminki Observation number 67123

Visibility III / V

Sari Pietikäinen, Corona Borealis, Rovaniemi


I have been waiting and waiting for a bright evening in Rovaniemi or Oulu since the beginning of the Milky Way Challenge. Now you finally snorted. I attracted my friend with his daughter, and with the group we headed towards Koitelinkoski. I was surprised at how illuminated that area was ... But we found a place where the lights didn't bother me much anymore. I snapped a few pictures of the rap before a thin gauze rolled over somewhere and the orbit disappeared. For a small moment it became dark and cloudless enough that we could see the Milky Way with very bare eyes. It’s just pretty enchanting, as my friend said.
