Half-sky auroras

27.9.2022 at 02.50 - 05.00 - Mäntyharju (III)
Jukka Kytömäki

A slow and slow start, but then started with high beams. Gradually over half the sky mixed movement, the coloring varied in variety. Pulsating spots and gentle corona alternately. A dense fog is present all the time, making the pictures blurry. Also a strange curly cloud high up. Fortunately, the repo colors were clearly visible, at least from the machine.

Plenty of handsome rays, and spots in the final stage. A few quick fireballs in the low west-northwest as well.

As the clouds cleared to the north, rays and corona immediately began to appear. Movement quite fast and variable. The colors came out well on the screen by increasing the brightness. The rays went up fast and high. in picture five there is a special "cup" on the right. The cloud cover came again, but fortunately only partially.

In the middle of repos filming, vyps started to appear in three different places in the north. For a while they were simultaneous with repos. It was nice to watch their development.

Eye-catching night shining clouds

Surprisingly handsome at this point in August. They lasted a long time and shone brightly. Only a few clouds are scattered in the sky and even in the distance. The repos remained hidden this time.

Night clouds in the northeast. I also have my suspicions that pictures 1, 2 and 3 are the cause of the rocket launch. The stench in the north of the fourth picture are probably the real ones.

The text section was left empty. All in all, a handsome repo portfolio for this fall. The rays were incredibly high almost to the zenith and there was plenty of color brilliance. A faint arc formed several times at different heights. However, normal clouds hindered the lowest part of the sky.

Clear night clouds and again to shoot. They lasted for a long time and the last ones that smelled still rose high. In picture 3, the bream patterns in the middle.

The brightness of the fog arc varied with the movement of the fog rafts. Can glory be reflected from the water to the fog raft.

The very clear and mostly bright lights were slowly flying towards the west. The sky to the northwest is covered with clouds. The dim gauzes finally rose to the zenith.

Bright and high definition belts. A few spots were exceptionally bright. The belts waved and there were other special things. A ''mask'' peeks through the opening in the last picture. The pictures are in chronological order.

Darkening nights already provide good opportunities to observe these phenomena in the sky. Repo meters also in red, but did not give signals to the sky yet. I hope the enlightening clouds get stronger from here.
