Noctilucent clouds visible between clouds - 6.8.2020 at 02.00 - 6.8.2020 at 02.10 Kemiönsaari Observation number 92557

Visibility I / V

Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

There were norm clouds in the northern sky almost all night. At two o'clock at night, a small opening opened very low. It seemed to my eyes that there are a few night cloud belts. I decided to take a couple of dock photos and there were night clouds there.
