Light pillars - 23.1.2014 at 06.44 Hämeenkyrö Observation number 21904

Visibility II / V

Heidi Rikala, Ursa (Helsinki)

During the business trip, high artificial light pillars were seen in Kyröskoski (Hämeenkyrö), - for once! Of course, the trip wasn’t like a paperback, and because I then tried to save them, I used my coworker’s car roof as a stand. The picture is really crappy, but I put it anyway. Yes, it stinged when there was no better camera on the way.

In the past, I saw really amazing pillars in Tampere on the night between 18 and 19 January, but there are only memories of them. Fortunately, other enthusiasts and photographers put the pictures in Sky Watch.
