Visibility III / V
I went to Kopparnäs to photograph the Milky Way, although I was aware of the possibility of northern lights. When I got there, the sky was partly cloudy. The arc of northern lights passing through the zenith stood out. The couple of Lords were just about to leave, had also come for the same things but left because of the clouds. I took a few shots of the northern lights quickly and also tried the Milky Way but there were clouds in front of it. I thought to wait if the weather would clear up, but then roughly the only deaf rain in all of Southern Finland struck and had to flee the place. I set off to drive home but noticed a bright star in the shallow north. I stopped the car and glanced at the weather, it was pretty clear. Then nothing more than back the same route.
The northern lights were no longer an arc in the low north but I raped to go the Milky Way. Panu Lahtinen had put a potential SAR arc in the WA group and checked from Ursa Artjärvi's camera that it also passes through the summer triangle. Yes, despite all the cloud adventures, it seems to get stuck, even though at that point it was already clearly dimmed in the Star Rock picture.
Others came to the same things and once the Milky Way businesses had been taken care of, a new storm was expected when the 1h forecast looked promising. As he looked east, he noticed that now those rays were moving fast. Now the cannon didn't rise very high but it was pretty. It was damn damp and the front element of the glass started to mist up, which can be seen in the pictures. Fixing it seemed too hard so I let it be, it got the effect on top of the deal.
The return trip was pretty foggy, I wondered when the windshield wouldn’t clear at all. It didn't occur to me then that it could be easier if you adjusted the windshield ... Fortunately, however, it became clear on the way that you didn't have to guess where you were going. #sarg
