Rare halos - 6.10.2020 at 01.20 Taivassalo Observation number 94148

Visibility IV / V

Juuso Nurmio, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

A halo fetched through a little harder again. I looked at a picture of the sky camera somewhere and noticed a ring around the Moon. As I later went through the images through the night, the 120 ° side moon, which had been visible for a couple of minutes, hit my eyes. Unfortunately, the Moon itself is left out of the picture, but yes at least the ring and the top side can be distinguished in some of the pictures.

Oho, 120 Kuulla. Hyvin huomattu!

Onpa hieno havainto. Tuo olisi ilman videota jäänyt helpolla huomaamatta!

Meinasi jäädä alkuperäiseltä videoltakin huomaamatta. Ajoin koko yöltä videon 25 kuvaa sekunnissa, ja tuo viiden minuutin vilahdus menee aika äkkiä siinä ohi. Osui kuitenkin onneksi silmään.
