At least 10 lightning strikes seen - 2.8.2018 at 22.00 - 3.8.2018 at 00.00 Joensuu Observation number 76269

Visibility III / V

Last night, Kontiolahti had a long night of thunder. The flicker looked really handsome as a thick layer of clouds darkened the landscape and lightning flashed it momentarily. Admittedly, lightning struck mostly inside the clouds, and as a result, image capture remained rather poor when compared to the situation seen with my own eyes. Still, the feeling was great in the heat of an almost tropical summer night.
