Fogbow

15.9.2021 at 18.11 - 18.26 - Karigasniemi (IV)
Tarja Kouvo

A light mist hovered on the sunny side of the mountain and on the other side the mist was already a fog wall. I blinked at the fog wall between, it was and remained. Then, at a glance, I saw a small colorful backpack that I adjusted to photograph. My shadow just stuck in the picture all the time. At some point, I saw a whole huge white arc. It shone, it was clear as to what. Rinkula, on the other hand, disappeared in between, then reappeared. It was the first fog arc of my life I encountered on the top of the Ailigas fell.

Half-sky auroras

11.9.2021 at 00.07 - 02.00 - Utsjoki, Karigasniemi (IV)
Tarja Kouvo

Already when I left home I saw that in the yard I was already on my head, on the beach they had a gauze, a belt on the horizon with rays and in between they came to stamp directly on my head. I did not see them in color with the naked eye, although in the second image the camera revealed blue rays.

One halo form

Was the first halo of this fall.

Quiet aurora arc

5.9.2021 at 01.39 - Utsjoki, Karigasniemi (II)
Tarja Kouvo

A brilliant fan visible quite clearly rose behind the trees, there were few clouds in the sky here and there, and without those disturbing clouds, I think the fan beam would have been even magnificent. The direction of shooting is the western or Norwegian side. Soon there was a drizzle and with it the departure home.

Pääsateenkaari

6.8.2021 at 19.49 - Karigasniemi (III)
Tarja Kouvo

Häivähdys sateenkaaresta oli näkyvissä hetken, ei aavistustakaan oliko ilmiö tuota suurempi, koska puut estivät näkyvyyden.

Useita halomuotoja

5.2.2021 at 14.26 - Laukaa (II)
Tarja Kouvo

Sivuaurinkoja näkyi silmiini alkaen klo 11.30 ja viimeisen näin noin kello kolmen aikaan. Tuossa kuvassa näin kaksi, joista toinen sammui muutaman minuutin kuluttua.

Keinovalopilareita

2.2.2021 at 21.58 - 23.11 - Laukaa (II)
Tarja Kouvo

Vaaleita valojuovia joukossa myös punaisia näkyi ikkunasta. Kuvanottohetkellä punaiset olivat jo historiaa, vaaleat tai valkoiset puolestaan hohtivat ja liikkuivat mielestäni oikein vaikuttavasti. Lopussa pukkasi pilveä taivaalle ja samalla show päätti hiipua.

Active aurora band

24.10.2020 at 00.00 - 01.30 - Laukaa (III)
Tarja Kouvo

The rays were visible in moderation and a certain arc. At half past two, the clouds packed on and the fires were covered.

Active aurora band

14.9.2020 at 01.11 - 02.22 - Laukaa (III)
Tarja Kouvo

Coincidentally, I visited the Hankasalmi observatory page and there was a greenery visible there. So suddenly to the beach. The sky was a clear starry sky, which is also why it was worth leaving. At first, the gauze was already visible, then it condensed, the movement began. More was an arc in the lead, and some rays. I wasn’t equipped for that night trip, so the battery wasn’t full. When the battery was discharged, it started to cloud a little, and the sky remained in a gauze-like state.

Active aurora band

10.10.2018 at 21.47 - 23.36 - Laukaa (III)
Tarja Kouvo

While trying, I tried a new place in the middle of the fields away from the extra harmful lights. On the dark road, the weak arch appeared hazy beautiful, I was waiting for what would happen .. the mass seemed to condense on the horizon, soon the fires flashed to life and I marveled, amazed at how the dark road turned bright. I photographed what I used to while trying to do color analysis of the fire I saw with the naked eye. I think they had color. When the fires ended, I was hopefully waiting for a new screen, trying to make a small ray, but it did. When I returned home, I was still blinking...

Aktiivinen revontulivyö

7.10.2018 at 21.14 - 23.23 - Laukaa (III)
Tarja Kouvo

Kirkas kaari oli heti näkyvillä rannalle saavuttuani järven yllä, siitä ensimmäinen kuva. Kaunis kaari liikehti jonkin verran. Lopulta se himmeni, ei tapahtunut pitkään aikaan yhtään mitään. Noin yhdentoista aikaan alkoi sitten show, oli sädettä, kaari kulki eteenpäin taivaalla kuin juna konsanaan, välistä revontulet olivat melkein pääni päällä. Upea elämys!

Quiet aurora arc

24.9.2018 at 00.13 - Laukaa (II)
Tarja Kouvo

A dim arc of rays appeared shortly after I arrived at the beach. The phenomenon lasted only a moment, soon the arc disappeared. For an hour and a half, I waited for the phenomenon to recur, but in those initial minutes, the northern lights remained. The moon shone brightly behind him and one meteorite flew west after taking the picture.

Primary rainbow

Tarja Kouvo

A downpour brought an entire rainbow to the sky. I only managed to get a clip, the arc had disappeared after I got the camera in my hands.

Quiet aurora arc

16.8.2018 at 00.54 - 00.55 - Laukaa (II)
Tarja Kouvo

I left for the local beach at midnight to see if I could see. The oval had landed appropriately, stars were visible from the sky, even clouds. The rays were visible when I got to the beach, but I didn’t precede them when I was looking for a suitable shooting location on the pier. When it was found, the rays went out into a shimmering arc. It was only separated by taking a test shot and it wasn’t until about one o’clock that a new vibe started to happen. A couple of pictures of it. Before the two left home, then there was a feeling that nothing was happening anymore. A few assholes saw this, bu...

One halo form

Departure for the store was delayed to the sky after a glimpse. There was a very clear ring that needed to be saved. Now with the clock around 4pm the same ring is still visible.

Aktiivinen revontulivyö

2.9.2017 at 01.13 - Laukaa (III)
Tarja Kouvo

Tulet ilmestyivät heti rannalle päästyäni. Oikein hätkäyttivät menollaan. Jälkiviisautta: olisi pitänyt säätää valotusaikaa lyhemmäksi aivan heti jalustakiinnityksen jälkeen. Menoa jatkui vain hetki, sitten kaikki ohi eikä vaalea harso enää tunninkaan odotusajan jälkeen syttynyt. Erään nopeasti liikkuvan vyön näin vaalean punertavana, kuvaan sitä en ehtinyt saada.

One halo form

For a few minutes, a bright side sun was visible, looking like a snippet of a rainbow.

Primary rainbow

1.8.2017 at 19.08 - Laukaa (III)
Tarja Kouvo

The sun was shining, water was gushing, then a rainbow appeared. The first of the summer. I browsed those pictures from the previous day in more detail and noticed that almost the entire arc was visible. Another almost full arc image two minutes before the main image. The clouds became really little water, so I ventured under the eaves to look for shooting angles. The third image is zoomed closer due to the fascinating colors. With one passerby, we correctly calculated how many colors to see.

Bright night shining clouds

28.7.2017 at 00.20 - 01.24 - Laukaa (IV)
Tarja Kouvo

Promised a pretty bright night, so I decided even at home to blink at the sky. The first picture is a playful matte gauze, however, made me go out to shoot. I thought the thing was over, but when it wasn't: the sky and the clouds were getting brighter and brighter from the inside, back out to wonder. Inside, in the window, the brightness of the clouds strengthened, that is, out again. In the end, the clouds were like northern lights to me, so bright and somehow moving they shone. They were beautiful in my eyes.

Muu myrskyilmiö

18.7.2017 at 15.03 - Laukaa
Tarja Kouvo

Keli oli sellainen, että ounastelin jotain mielenkiintoista olevan taivaalla. Kiersin pihapiirin taivasta silmäten, komeat pilvet näinkin. Ehkä nämä ovat niitä mammatuspilviä, joista olen muutaman kuvan nähnyt teidän sivuilla. Ukkonen sadekuurolla olikin päällä kello 16.50 molemmin puolin.
