Clearly visible night shining clouds - 5.8.2021 at 02.00 - 5.8.2021 at 02.40 Kouvola Observation number 100224

Visibility III / V

Tero Sipinen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Before two, Mikko Peussa suggested that you can see the north again. I took a peek out the window and at first I didn’t notice the streaks that were left behind the building. Suddenly I put a little jacket around my neck and went to the yard for better positions and there were them, about 10 degrees high. One picture (at 2.02) and then to sleep.

I was already raising the angle of the blanket when I thought that in the rape of one picture it wouldn't take long for the beak to squeak. And not when downstairs and with quick editing a snapshot of a quick rape.

And one more check: now you can already see it at an altitude of almost 20 degrees, over a previously obstructed building. But can't stand the terrain. And not putting the timelip factory on.
