Eye-catching night shining clouds - 20.7.2021 at 23.45 - 21.7.2021 at 03.45 Kangasala Observation number 99762

Visibility V / V

Markku Lintinen, Tampereen Ursa

The super night clouds were in the sky when I happened to glance out. A breathtaking sight live - extended far to the south sky.

The start was seen about an hour earlier in the camera recording.

EDIT 1.8.2021

Yet I saw as a reminder today a compiled timelapse of night clouds of super night.

Lisäsin ylläpidollisesti timelapsen tähän alkuperäiseen havaintoosi. (Venytin myös havainnon alku- ja loppuaikojakin vielä vartilla kun on aikaleima kätevästi näkyvillä videolla! :)
