I took the camera for the night to photograph any northern lights. In the morning I looked at the pictures. There was no fire, but there was a surprise. The fireball had been left in the picture. Luckily, the camera shot with 5s exposure and 4s interval.

Several halo forms

Fog arc and chlorine. In the morning mist, I put the drone in the air with the 360 camera attached underneath. Immediately after the ascent, a clear nebula appeared as a complete circle opposite the sun. The thickness of the mist layer was about 70 m above the ground. In the middle of the ring there was also a slight chlorine phenomenon.

Decreasing "brown moon" in the morning sky!

Reflected sunbeams

27.9.2021 at 07.52 - Kuusamo, Rukatunturi (III)
Jani Päiväniemi, Ursa (Pohjois-Suomi)

Would cloud rays be reflected? At first I thought that light would come through that gap in the cloud but about 5 minutes later the gap was closed and the rays were still visible. Not quite calm but in some quiet coves on the lakes.

A little lazy hustle when I only got a picture of the Moon a week ago, but better late ...

Fog Arch: It was delightfully foggy in the morning and I started waiting for the sun to rise from behind the ridge. And then as the sun shone behind me, a mist began to appear in the mist.

Messier 17 Self-fog or Horseshoe Nebula ... Swan Nebula, Lobster Nebula ... In my opinion, it looks more like an "Angry Birds" nebula: D

Several bright halo forms

26.9.2021 at 23.35 - 00.10 - Salla (III)
Dennis Lehtonen

Shortly before midnight, I went outside to watch the state of the sky in terms of northern lights. Above my head I saw a very colorful arc which I assumed to be northern lights. I was a little confused though, as the northern lights values were completely non-existent. I picked up the camera and took pictures with my hand. I wondered why the arc wasn't green on the camera screen and then I realized I wanted it. The tripod was in the tailgate of the car, I went to ask for the keys to the car so during that time the sky had gone to the cloud and when the clouds disappeared half an hour later...
