Bright night shining clouds - 8.7.2018 at 00.20 - 8.7.2018 at 01.00 Nurmijärvi, Lepsämä ja Espoo Majalampi Observation number 75139

Visibility IV / V

After an exciting football match, night jump fibers were visible on almost every side of the oxygen jump. By far the brightest and most handsome area in the west-northwest. Nothing but shooting shots for stumps and nearby field openings. I followed the situation in the field for a while. I noticed that the wind calmed down so I decided to visit Majalammi on the Espoo side. However, when I got there, the screen faded, I had time to grab a couple of frames (second picture). When I got home, something more developed in the northeast, but I couldn't describe it anymore.

Great, warm summer night. There were a lot of bats on the move :)
