Lightning photo

Petri Mäkinen

Thunder was promised for the night, so nothing more than to monitor the situation. The first front came and went solely to the rain of Keran. The second front already looked very different when rising from the sea. Darker blue lump. As he approached, the flashes of life began to appear. The front came to light and the nearest lightning struck a distance of about 9km. As he got closer, the lightning stopped and a relentless rain began. But there were comics to watch. The first night thunderstorms this year.

A fireball at night, brighter than the venus

Again, I thought of putting the camera on for the night to capture the interval. 990 images with 13s exposure, plus 1s interval. The possibilities for the northern lights were moderate, and of course it was Lyridie's time. While browsing the pictures in the morning, it was again a nice surprise to come across a picture of a handsome starburst. There had also been relatively handsome northern lights.

In the evening I used northern lights, which were hardly visible. I thought again to leave the camera to shoot the interval for the night. 13s exposure, 1s interval and 990 images. if even something interesting would remain in the pictures. Maybe northern lights if you get excited or maybe a starburst. In the morning I scrolled through the pictures and it was quite a pleasant surprise when there was a really great looking fireball left in the pictures. 02.24, 2.4.22, Mask

I initially noticed a few clouds of this type, which then disappeared pretty quickly. A few tovi went and then more began to appear. At times the sky looked "as if it were marble." For less than two hours I watched the clouds form.

In the morning I told my wife that it would be good to go and describe. I went to the terrace in the morning and noticed something different that I hadn’t paid attention to before. I suddenly went to get inside the phone and took a picture of the surface halo. Then inside to put on outerwear. The temperature was -18 ° C. And nothing more than a camera in and out for a couple of hours in the field.

As I lit the northern lights, I thought of taking a few pictures from somewhere other than the north. Coincidentally, a starburst was left in the picture. Personally, I didn't see when I was looking elsewhere :( Guess it's an airplane sit though?
