Visibility III / V
In the evening, I had been setting up fly fishing for a long time, when I heard that there were many kinds of exotic wanderers on the move following the southeast currents. I also put my recently acquired GoPro (Hero 10) to shoot the southern sky when it was a clear night. While tuning them, he noticed a flash in the east, which came from a thundercloud over Laatoka. After all, it should also set the camera to shoot in that direction in the hope of overhead flashes. And while putting it on, the northern lights started to glow. So there were a few Äksons everywhere. The air was incredibly warm (+17C) and calm, but also humid, so the lenses fogged up in about half an hour. The most beautiful northern lights soon faded, but I continued to shoot towards the east, occasionally drying the lens.
At 1:48 a.m. I noticed a SAR curve in the images and went to one more camera to document it. The arc was very dim and was only faintly visible even in photographs. Pictures 1-4 have been processed moderately to bring out the redness of the arch. Somewhat surprisingly, the arch was also visible in GoPro's timelapse. You could distinguish it in the dark from the camera screen quite well, but on the computer screen it almost disappeared. With heavy processing, at the expense of the quality of the image, it somehow appeared in the video (picture 7). The SAR arc was visible at least until 2:15 a.m. In pictures 5 and 6, the northern lights are still in the northern direction at 0:15 and 0:37.
I haven't found overhead lightning in the pictures yet, but a rare wandering butterfly came to light, so not a crazier night!
