Eye-catching night shining clouds - 12.8.2018 at 00.50 - 12.8.2018 at 03.30 Kempele Observation number 76704

Visibility V / V

Jarmo Leskinen, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

Another great night cloud show and now also includes northern lights. Now that the nights had already darkened, the night clouds appeared really bright. I started watching the screen after midnight and all the time the clouds brightened and expanded. In the morning when I looked at the allsky camera pictures then the clouds had only been at their widest after three at night and then covered almost the whole sky. A little annoying that he couldn't control for so long.
