Zodiacal light - 22.3.2020 at 21.20 Turku Observation number 89280

Visibility I / V

Juuso Nurmio, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

This specialty now had to be witnessed at least once with my own eyes. When leaving, the air still seemed clear, but in Ruissalo I noticed that there was clearly a little fog in the air. By the way, due to the proximity of the city, the place is probably not the best for this job, although there are no clear sources of light pollution in the direction of the picture. The lens also ran out in the middle, and therefore this image also had to be assembled from three images. The wind blowing from the sea froze my fingers, and I didn’t even see the zodiac light with the naked eye, but yes it is somehow visible here (at least in the thumbnail). So the task is done.
