Also pictures of this evening's (13.11.2022) fireball. Foggy and partly cloudy weather interfered with detection from the ground, but the Bear Camera was able to catch a trace of this ball as well...

Father's Day morning fireball. The time stamp shows that the flare was a few seconds short of 05:53. --- (a little 'bump' in the movement in this video as well -> let's focus on information technology)

Based on the neighbor's visual observation, I checked the recordings of Karhukamera (8th camera - to the northwest, i.e. towards the center of Pori). The fireball, which moved quickly in a north-->northwest direction, was recorded at least partially at approx. from 21:59:52.

On the night of 8/9/10/2022, we observed a modest Northern Lights show. Low on the northern horizon, an aurora borealis could be seen from time to time, which tried to activate several times, but just didn't go away. The northern lights were like "to be or not to be", sometimes the arc was visible, and sometimes it disappeared from view. A bright, almost full moon illuminated the night landscape. Swans were squawking somewhere far away. There was also the whispering of a scoundrel from somewhere far away. In any case, the atmosphere was great, even though the northern lights remained muted...

A nostalgic moment: The TAL-1 telescope changed hands and got back into real action observing, after a break of several years! The sunspots stood out nicely on the 'white plate', from which I took a picture with my mobile phone, and with a quick edit (on my phone) I tried to make the spots stand out better. The pictures themselves have little value, but the moment of observation itself was already worth observing...
