Dim night shining clouds - 9.8.2022 at 23.18 - 10.8.2022 at 00.05 Tallinn Observation number 108242

Visibility II / V

I wandered out onto the deck, glancing to the north, probably at the right moment, when already after midnight the show had faded to faintly distinguishable on the edge of the horizon.

Edit. I updated the illustration. The paws of a big bear stood out from the pictures, based on which the vyp area was between northwest and north with a width of 40 degrees and a height of approx. 10 degrees at the beginning of the presentation. In the end, the area shifted towards the northeast.

Ihan nättiä oli puolisen tuntia. Ehkä ikkuna avautuu taas aamuyöstä täällä etelämpänäkin.

Kalajoella nousseet klo 0.30 n.20 asteeseen. Pilviraoista yritän hahmottaa mitkä ovat vyppejä.
