Visibility IV / V
I read about the encounter too late to get to the edge on Friday night, but luckily it was also clear on Saturday and Venus in an even more eye-pleasing place as an extension of the Pleiadian "bucket arm".
When I got to my backyard on Masuuninmäki after nine, Venus shone bright and the stars of Seulaste were just igniting. There was a thin thin cloud of gauze in the sky that created a circle around Venus - and a distinctly elliptical one like the one I saw after I saw it! A nice surprise addition to the evening's findings.
I tested different focal lengths and exposure settings in my time until I started to crave something interesting in the foreground of the images as well to provide context. Venus and his stellar companions were still relatively high in the sky, and I didn’t come to take particularly wide-angle lenses with me, but I realized that from Näsinkallio one might get encountering celestial bodies in the same picture as Näsinneula! So I went for a walk there, and to my delight I was able to say that my hunch was right. May the HL Kuru shipwreck memorial standing on Näsinkallio still fit in a couple of pictures!
On the way back, I composed a few more pictures using the railway bridge over Tammerkoski in the front. A wider angle lens would have been convenient to be here as well…
