Perseidit - 14.8.2020 at 01.30 - 14.8.2020 at 04.00 Lahti Observation number 92932

Visibility IV / V

Even though it was already more than a day from the maximum of the asses, the night before Friday I had to leave for Myllysaari in Lahti to check if there were still some flights. The hazy sky ate the best blade, but yes there was still commendable activity while the bats were keeping track.

Above the northeastern horizon, there were also pleasantly bright illuminating night clouds from the time, of which there was its own report.

Less than fifty flights were caught in the photographs, and more than 30 in the video.

Hienot kuvat ja video! Onpa kirkkaita tähdenlentoja. Videolla näkyvistä Perseideistä tulee mieleen nimitys Laurin kyyneleet.

Kiitos Satu! Täytyypä muistaa tuo Laurin kyyneleet ensi vuonna; kuvausreissun voisi silloin suunnata jollekin Pyhän Laurin kirkoistamme, kenties Lohjalle tai Janakkalaan.
