At least 5 lightning strikes seen - 13.7.2020 at 23.25 - 13.7.2020 at 23.45 Espoo Observation number 91898

Visibility III / V

Janne Sievinen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

When I returned home from work at about 11 pm, a heavy rain area passed over Espoo, where it also rarely flashed. There was still a camera and tripods in the car after the night cloud shooting trip, and I stopped at Karhusaari to shoot the northeast-facing rain center, where that second picture was taken at 23:25. At the same time, another center approached from the west, which then, as Tapiola knows, hit the ground at least three times. The first picture is from the second attack at 11:45 p.m. After that, it started to rain really hard at the scene and the flashes were already close enough that it was best to jump into the shelter of the car and return home to dry the clothes and the camera.
