Rocket-related clouds - 22.2.2018 at 19.06 - 22.2.2018 at 19.15 Oulunsalo Observation number 70912

Visibility Unclassified

came from the jog to the yard and first watched that some plane would land at the nearby airport from the direction of Hailuoto looking north from the yard. The light approached slowly and seemed to pass in an east-west direction, coming from about 250 degrees. I followed the light for a couple of minutes and waited for the sound to be heard because there was a ball of frozen air and at least some sound from Finnhems' medical helicopter. Often it flies from the north of the field to the oys. No sound was heard and the light was greater than the normal landing light of the aircraft. In the meantime, I picked up the phone to take a picture. The light was slightly below the canopies of the backyard trees, but was also clearly visible between the branches. I managed to take a few more pictures in peace and annoy when there was no real camera. The light turned and clearly changed direction and headed north at 310 degrees. The speed was really slow and didn’t change at all and the light came foggy soft and bright. It moved completely horizontally.
