All-sky aurora

10.9.2021 at 22.50 - 01.00 - Kolari, Hannukainen (V)
Jukka Kytömäki

There were long-lasting repos and variation from side to side. Between the greenery of the whole sky bridge as seen; also to the south. As I left the bridge, the camera tripod crashed into the railing, and immediately there was a loud roar and a huge splash. Immediately looking across the railing, I saw such a large animal (bear) that came under the bridge and quickly crossed the Äkäsjoki River, leaving for the bush on the opposite shore. I continued to shoot near the cottage.

This time, the brightest of the summer came, which only improved over the morning and eventually rose above the zenith. Images now in reverse order. More than a hundred pictures and a few changes of place. The ensemble was complemented by the presence of the lunar sickle.

Appropriately clouds, clouds and again clouds. Fortunately, not a nuisance until. The moonlight would also illuminate comfortably. The lens also fogged twice. Go to tobacco already unless you stay until morning. The clouds also faded so gently.

It started well even today, but even if it is still late. This has already become a habit, so many nights are watched. When it ends well, summer turns dark.

Handsome and bright night clouds in the sky again. The lower clouds, however, disturbed the central area of the video, where the belts in place and the fast-moving waves cruised. Thinner norm clouds could also be accommodated. Even great details came in a few pictures.

Rising really slowly from the northeast. At first only one matte belt, after which it turned into waves as it expanded. Images again in shooting order.

Again, they illuminate. Started before midnight dim, but Cloudiness prevented filming. As the clouds receded, there was already a movement. From the northeast rose a herringbone pattern and a camera to shoot images. When the clouds arrived again, the pattern of bones also disintegrated.

Eye-catching night shining clouds

20.7.2021 at 23.40 - 03.15 - Mäntyharju (V)
Jukka Kytömäki

The evenings get dark and the night clouds shine almost all over the sky. The midnight belts were long lasting, but waves and streaks occasionally appeared in the mix. My pictures are in chronological order. In the picture, the two cross stripes in the middle seem to break the belt stripes. The ripple of some sort is probably on the same level. In Figure five, there are several as if they were like a hole cloud. After my description, the sky is still occupied by belts far south.

Clear and bright ribbon-like belts. These are nice to follow and this is how summer nights are put to good use. The last image is processed by Sharpen ½ (Unsharp Mask).

I was a little late but looked good. All the lights glided towards the south, i.e. Turku.

Now it was the turn of Eastern Finland and it looked good. Starting from the southeast and following from the northeast and north. Sometimes from high south. Again from the northeast and finally still to the southeast, where the moon is already rising. Video compilation of 40 images orientation Northeast / north.

Partial solar eclipse

10.6.2021 at 14.00 - 14.20 - Mäntyharju (IV)
Jukka Kytömäki

There were no suitable gray filters, so I taped the two polar filters in front of the lens. The result was special and surprising. The pictures came after all, but the pictures had to be edited accordingly. The images somehow became different, even though I shot with almost the same settings. The filters made strange ghosts above the real moon.
