Rocket-related clouds - 6.4.2019 at 01.22 Kolari Observation number 82173

Visibility V / V

I photographed northern lights on the Ylläsjärvi side of Yllästunturi on a ski slope. It was handsome. As they faded I went for a walk to the lodge and from time to time I turned to look back. Normally there was a thin gauze that no longer interested me after the show itself. But then suddenly it was as if the giant animal's paw pattern had been. There were these balls several times, the place varied a bit. At least I got to describe this one not being left behind in the trees. I have never seen anything like this before.

#raketti: Nasa AZURE 1 & 2 / Black Brant XI-A (rocket test)

Hieno bongaus tämäkin Pohjois-Norjan rakettikokeesta. Lisätietoa uutisissa.

Tässä on vielä tuo linkki, joka kertoo NASAn tekemästä kokeesta:

Linkki on tuolla toisesta havainnosta aukeavassa Facebook-sivustossa, mutta tässä vielä suoraan.

Tuo linkki on puolitoista vuotta sitten rapakon takana tehtyyn kokeeseen, mutta tosiaan samanlainen koe kuin tämä Norjassa nyt tehty.

Ai että, kun olisin ollut vielä yhden yön pohjoisessa... No, aina ei voi voittaa :( Mutta loistavaa, että niin moni sai tämän talteen! :)
