Dim night shining clouds - 6.8.2022 at 00.35 - 6.8.2022 at 01.15 Helsinki Observation number 108098

Visibility II / V

At midnight I checked the north and northeast: nothing. The first cautious promise was in the north at 0:22. Actual sighting in the north at 0:35. The Vypi gained altitude by a few degrees at 0:50. A belt appeared in the northwest at 0:58. After all, a statistical case would have been obtained by taking a rasp from the window at 1:15. The upper edge of the night clouds reached approx. 5 degrees. These are the last shows of the season here.
