Visibility III / V

Tero Sipinen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

I peeked out the window twenty minutes ago and it looked like there were faint night clouds in the low north. I just went to the yard with the camera and they had turned into sharp waves.

I took one picture. The only one. No timelapse this time. Still at least ...: D

EDIT: Updated end time, still showing (0.55)

EDIT: Still showing (1.20) but now to sleep.

Helsingissä oli oikku esitys matalalla vartti puolenyön jälkeen ja puoli yhteen tullessa kirkkain osa hiipui, kun Aurinko oli painunut jo - 12 asteen alapuolelle.

Näyttivätkin liikkuvan länttä kohti. Kuvan tilanteen jälkeen nousivat vielä hieman ylemmäs, terävien laineiden tilalle tuli paksuja pötkylöitä. Nyt enää lähinnä harsoa matalalla.
