Clearly visible night shining clouds - 5.6.2021 at 01.19 Espoo Observation number 98679

Visibility III / V

Mika Yrjölä, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

I went out at night to go out with the camera for the rest of the photography project, but as I glanced at the sky I shuddered at the formation of very illuminated night cloud-like formations. I marched to the seashore to a place where there was a better view to the north and I had to believe that at this point in the summer there was such a thing. After all, this was not a very showy set yet, but it raises hopes that there will be good cannon in this field in the late summer.
