Bright night shining clouds - 21.7.2020 at 01.00 - 21.7.2020 at 03.00 Vihti Observation number 92231

Visibility IV / V

In the evening, I hoped to toddle the difficult forest path. The trip had to be folded for a couple of kilometers (dodging toads) to the beautiful Saaren-Musta pond. Would there be illuminating night clouds? Well, they started to stand out around midnight, and by 1 o'clock they were already reflected handsomely at the base of the pond. There were a few norm clouds in front of it and the sky was a bit hazy, but still the dim night cloud gauze was visible up to the zenith. Atmospheric summer night. The cuckoos and loons accompaniment with their mecca :) The last picture in the series from the return trip from Majalammi on the Espoo side.
