Clearly visible night shining clouds

30.6.2021 at 00.42 - 00.47 - Kirkkonummi (III)
Katri Kuparinen

I went to get a little cool in the yard at night before going to bed and took the camera with me if there were any illuminating night clouds and there were them. There was no time to shoot for a long time, but during that time it was very nice to see between the north and the east.

Arcus cloud

I had watched thunder approach from lightningsmaps.org. There was no rumbling inside as the table fans shouted like the last day if you could get a little without movement to a temperature of 28 degrees. I went outside at 1 o'clock and there was a really loud rumble and the first flashes in a little while. At 13.55 I went out again and started to see that there are special shapes in the approaching clouds and I stayed to follow the situation and took pictures. It wasn’t until they were closer that I recognized it as a avalanche cloud and after taking a few pictures I started filming the ev...

Halo phenomena covering the sky

3.5.2021 at 08.03 - 14.30 - Kirkkonummi (IV)
Katri Kuparinen

I read in the morning that there would be a wide variety of halos in sight, so I had to go out into the yard to look with the camera. Breakfast was being prepared, so suddenly only a few pictures before returning inside. Later then back to photograph and luckily is home, so got through the day ago to describe if anything new had come up. At 2.30 pm then more clouds started to come, so it was no longer visible and after three it was already completely in the cloud. But it was handsome to watch. New halo shapes came to be seen. I even took one video. The horizon ring seemed to appear complete. T...

Several halo forms

I happened to look out the window and the bright right side sun was visible. All you have to do is go out and hurry to a slightly more open place to get pictures. When I arrived at the scene, the bright side suns were visible, and as a precaution, when I took one portrait in a short time, I saw a little 22 pieces. I didn’t notice anything else then, even though I looked in every direction, so I went home.

The wonderfully bright night clouds and I don't remember seeing them so widely across the sky and always directly above. 1. picture south-west direction. Figure 2 approximately northeast. Figure 3 approximately east. 4. picture straight up. Figure 5 also in the south-west direction.

Arcus cloud

The sky began to darken and I looked out the window. It was as if I had seen some elongated shape and went out with the camera. It looked like a avalanche cloud was approaching and I stayed to follow. The water started to seep in and I went under the sail to shoot. A good pace approached, but so the water also started to get harder in the harbor, so I moved under the eaves. I had time to take a picture of the couple before the downpour started. Shortly after I got back inside, the thunder rolled once. Admittedly, it then remained so that neither of its strange thunderstorms came.

The dog was used outdoors for the last time, so I took the camera with me if I happened to see night clouds, and this time they were clearly visible. Approximately south-west were visible.

This day gave even more to describe. When you and your dog came to enjoy the open air in the yard, you could see wonderfully brightly colored clouds of color and there was also a perimeter around the sun. I sat under a parasol, so some of the pictures are a little different with it, but the colors stand out better.

Already in the morning I could see the left side sun, but there is no picture of it. Then at 10am I went out to see when there were thin clouds of thunder to see if there was anything. Basic 22 is now at least, but is there anything else? I leave it to others to look at when I can’t say for myself. Later, only a light 22 was visible.

The second halo sighting of the day I saw in the evening. The bright left side sun was visible when it was time to go for an evening run with the dog.

I looked at the sky at half past ten that there were enough clouds and I was already wondering if there were hugs, but I didn't have time to look out at that time. But shortly before ten I went and a clear 22 appeared. After a while, the right side sun appeared and later a piece of the horizon ring.

My husband went outside and immediately deviated from telling me that now there is a halo around the moon that it is worth coming to see right away and of course I took the camera in and out. From the yard then I photographed, I didn’t bother to go any further. Not now as bright as ever, but visible nonetheless.

Corona

26.4.2020 at 13.06 - 13.08 - Espoo (IV)
Katri Kuparinen

We went with our dog for a beach walk on the shores of Mellsten in Haukilahti, Espoo, and according to Tapani I also looked at the sky if you could see halos or anything interesting. No halos were visible now, but there was a circle of the sun, though my attention was more focused on the peculiar cloud. I’ve never seen it myself before, but when I saw it, it occurred to me if it could be a hole cloud. As a precaution, I thought now to put this if it would become a certainty whether it is a hole cloud or not.

On Saturday I started watching the sky again when the sun started to set if there was a nice tan and it was fine again and the sun pillar also appeared the second night in a row.

My husband was going out in the evening after seeing a great sunset. Suddenly came to tell me that now you should come out and take the camera with you. Suddenly I hurried out and first took pictures in the yard, but then I walked to the edge of a nearby meadow to see better. It's a pity that the most handsome was over, but something was still photographed on the edge of the meadow.

After all, it then had to leave in the morning to photograph the "super moon" before going too down behind the woods. At 1.48 I had taken the last picture before the morning pictures.

Finally, the wait was rewarded and we were able to photograph the northern lights in the south as well. It was -5 degrees, but the freezing cold wind made shooting challenging as the hands began to freeze very quickly. But the guts only came to be described until the fingers were already quite stiff and then I had to stop. But there were bright fires and well seen with all eyes and also pink.

I noticed writings that have seen the moon halo, so I had to take the camera and go out to look. I couldn't go further outside the yard, but that's where the moon mumbled right in front of me. Pretty poorly visible 22 ring, but still visible and then I took a picture. Sometimes at 9pm I looked again, but then I didn’t see anymore and neither did I at 9.30pm and after that I didn’t even follow now. However, the fine, clear starry sky was already nice to see after a long cloudy time.
