Evening rays from the balcony.

Day's sluggish halo recovered.

The basic backbone is still in the sky today.

One halo form

6.9.2021 at 17.45 - 18.00 - Turku (I)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

A very impressive 22 ° ring stumbled from the sky when it came to work. The arc of the zenith environment there was also dim, but today there wasn’t much time to spend on this play.

Useita halomuotoja

5.9.2021 at 15.00 - 16.30 - Turku (II)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

22° rengas näkyi vaihtelevalla kirkkaudella lähes koko iltapäivän. 46° renkaasta oli myös aavistuksia jo visuaalisesti ja BR-käsittely varmisti asian.

Aurigidit

1.9.2021 at 00.25 - 00.45 - Turku (III)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Muutaman aurigidin näin vajaan puolen tunnin aikana ja yksi jäi myös kennolle klo 00.34. Kamera kuvasi jonkin aikaa sarjaa parvekkeella jossa olosuhteet on aika huonot haittavalojen takia. Ykköskuva on cropattu versio kakkosesta. Tämä näkyi klo 00.34.

One halo form

20.8.2021 at 13.30 - 13.40 - Turku (I)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

A dimmer 22 ° ring occasionally appeared behind the lower clouds.

Other storm phenomenon

18.8.2021 at 17.05 - Raisio (II)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

A few udders hung at the edge of the deaf cloud.

Primary rainbow

15.8.2021 at 20.10 - Sauvo (III)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

A small piece of the rainbow with a bit of anomalous features. It was born in those rainbands and the obvious shape of the arch is not really distinguished, but a piece of the main arch nonetheless. EDIT: Added another image with a slightly wider focal length and no cropping. Direct saving from Raw file to JPG image without any modifications.

Nähty vähintään 10 salamaa

14.8.2021 at 21.30 - 04.50 - Turku (IV)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Antoisa oli koko yön ukkosretki. Sauvo, Paimio, Lohja ja Turku tuli kierrettyä ja liikkeellä olin aamuun asti. Oikeastaan koko ajan salamoi jossain ja näkymät oli upeat yön pimeydessä. Haittana oli rankkasade monin paikoin, joka teki kuvaamisesta hankalaa. Ykköskuvakin on otettu autosta sisältä melkoisen kolmijalkaviritelmän avulla, jotta sain kameran paukuttamaan jonkinlaista sarjaa keskemmältä autoa. Loppuyöstä oli olosuhteet kohdillaan myös yläsalamoille. Merellä ukkosti tiuhaan ja taivas oli pilvien yläpuolelta kirkas. Kymmeniä välähdyksiä sain kennollle, mutta eipä nousseet keijut tai viu...

Perseids

Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Four dim asses were left on my second camera that was on duty in the middle of the taillights on my balcony. Personally, I was off-road, but with meager results. #bongaa100

Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Lower clouds hurt, but night clouds still recover from the cloud cloud.

Clearly visible night shining clouds

5.8.2021 at 23.45 - 02.05 - Turku (III)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

The first visual observation of night clouds at the beginning of the observation period. There was so much fog in places that finding filming locations was a bit behind the job. Picture 1. at 02.04, Turku. Picture 2. at 01.59, Turku. Figure 3. at 00.02, Paimio. EDIT: Last added a picture that shows what the fog was like at night in many areas. It was filmed at 00.26.

Clearly visible night shining clouds

5.8.2021 at 01.45 - 03.00 - Rusko (III)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

That's where those night clouds appeared again in the morning. Pretty pretty, but a small area to the north. Eventually the budgies rolled over with their big fingers.

Bright night shining clouds

3.8.2021 at 23.15 - 01.00 - Sauvo (IV)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

After all, there were quite bright night clouds against the dark sky. The contrast is already a little too much and the bright points of power are burning out. In the center of Sauvo, I wondered if the rising Moon could still be included in a seascape. It did not work from the trunk bridge, but in Sauvo's Rantola the Moon's sickle was in a good place and even drew a bridge to the cove of the bay. #bongaa100 The first image combines the top and bottom edges of images with slightly different exposure values.

Other storm phenomenon

3.8.2021 at 01.15 - 01.45 - Turku (II)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Kalevanta lights flashed in the south as the night clouds were photographed. The lightning was near Kemiönsaari, about 50 km south of my observation site Paattisilta. Includes one foggy dock image.

Bright night shining clouds

3.8.2021 at 00.30 - 01.15 - Rusko (IV)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

The night cloud area was not very wide, but I classify these as bright as well. The lower clouds eventually stole the play and the kalevant lights flashed in the south.

Bright night shining clouds

1.8.2021 at 23.30 - 00.35 - Salo (IV)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Quite a pretty August night cloud play like this in the south. I wandered the shores of Kemiö's Strömma and Salon's Teija. The play was centered between the West and the Northeast. The choice of location was successful in that there were already annoying low clouds in front of us when I came back. #bongaa100

Hyvin heikkoja yöpilviä

31.7.2021 at 03.00 - 03.30 - Nousiainen (I)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Under good observation, I would almost say the rest of the night was negative. However, during the reported observation period, very weak night clouds appeared to the north. Even then, for the first time, I misled the night cloud image because I was noticed so weak less often.
