Dim night shining clouds - 23.5.2020 at 00.39 - 23.5.2020 at 01.30 Laitila Observation number 90777

Visibility II / V

Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

Tired frantically the day after the mushroom trip, but I decided to go straight for a walk on my back. I took my cell phone and stand along — thankfully. When I reached the top of the hill, my attention was drawn to the bluish clouds that were quite high above the horizon. Checked out Fmin cloud maps, nothing. They have to be nights out, I thought. I tapped the documentary images and threw a fuss into the bit space. While filming it, the certainty of the night clouds was strengthened so I took a look at the guard site.

Edit. Time fixed


Rawit are on the mobile card, these are edited jpeg versions of the jpeg file, maybe a nipple for reporting;)
