The flashes were a little too far this time, but nonetheless it was a sick handsome trip! My husband threw the trip into "frouva's possession", meaning the credit was stiff (caused a slight panic). Those all did, yes, but ... but that thunder. That's the main performer. The Sámi chain that eventually stayed louder than expected and eventually the thunderous area visible to us shrank as it asked before the end of the world. (There was even a rumble at the beginning and it promised more than what the end result was.) We packed the stuff and following the thunderstorm map we headed for the outskirts and an open view to the north. During the drive, I followed the development of the cells in the direction of Lapland and Pori in Eurajoki, which seemed to become strained during the trip. We curled the gums in Laitila singing on the field road, and when we got out of the car, the cloud of Lapland and the direction of Pori began to flicker! The end result is that I’m a damn proud of myself. Visually, it may not be the best set (the subjects were far away, but visually very impressive. The most beautiful thing about the whole thing was that the planning and implementation of this trip was successful! it was remembered that kappas, we still saw the flickers of Lapland and Pori, that is ... maybe 80 kalevantus and live flashes in total. it was time to see such a long time ....

      Elosalamassa erottuu salaman viivamainen rakenne, mutta ääntä ei kuulu. Erotuksena elosalamaan kalevantuli on epämääräisempi välähdys, joka on maasalaman tai pilvisalaman heijastusta.

      Sekä kalevantuli että elosalama ovat molemmat salamointia, joka tapahtuu yleensä yli 20 km etäisyydellä havaitsijasta, mistä johtuen jyrinää ei kuulla.
