Eye-catching night shining clouds - 20.7.2021 at 23.57 - 21.7.2021 at 03.30 Laitila Observation number 99996

Visibility V / V

Pirjo Koski, Porin Karhunvartijat

absolutely icy and memorable vipp set!

The vipers started to appear well before midnight.

Even on the south side, night nights were visible, as was the zenith. The nights were at the beginning of the play everywhere. The shapes were varied but above all terribly bright!

In the middle of the play, I sighed that the moon has fallen, -okay, there was a shade on the ground, so a good unusual ...

The clouds bullied variably throughout the evening, and shooting situations ranged from chewing knuckles to open "almost clear skies."

Handsome to watch and forced to follow the whole play, although at times the sky was fully supported.

I only went to sleep after half past four in the morning :)
