Noctilucent clouds visible between clouds - 15.8.2018 at 01.50 Rovaniemi Observation number 76835

Visibility I / V


I would go to photograph the night clouds the night before, the temperature had already dropped to almost zero. Ordinary clouds moved more and less through the night, and the night clouds then appeared from their crevice.

Admittedly, the view was not as massive as it was over the weekend.
