      Bands are usually narrower, more twisty at the bottom, brighter, and more active than arches. Bands usually develop from arches.

Erikoinen tuo kirkas pilvi.On pohjoisessa Vaasasta katsoen. Onko Kiirunasta lähetetty joku raketti avaruuteen?

Kartalla havaintopaikka löytyi pohjoiselta Jäämereltä!?!
