Bright night shining clouds - 15.8.2018 at 02.19 Kajaani Observation number 76832

Visibility IV / V

Jarmo Moilanen, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

In the north, there were rather bright illuminating night clouds. There were also some lower clouds in the sky. Illuminating night clouds were already visible just after midnight. At this point, there were nicely lower clouds in the sky above them and I took a series of pictures from my front door. I compiled the attached HDR image from the four images in the series to better capture the surrounding images without exposing the illuminating night clouds.
