Clearly visible night shining clouds - 14.7.2016 at 02.07 Espoo Observation number 54461

Visibility III / V

Janne Sievinen, Ursa (Helsinki)

Beautiful night clouds lingered in the northern sky for another hour. The brightness seemed to vary somewhat, though perhaps quite a contrast to the clouds flying from time to time. The photo was taken in the Suurpello area of Espoo over Ring Road II.
