Milky way - 24.9.2017 at 21.00 - 24.9.2017 at 22.00 Turku Observation number 67193

Visibility II / V

Sakari Ekko, Turun Ursa

Tursa Ursa organized Bonga Milky Way evening in Ruissalo Saaronniemi on September 24. As you can see from the picture, there were a lot of people there. The weather favored the event, the Milky Way was visible to the naked eye, although the wasted light faded from the sky pretty much. Visitors received information about the starry sky and star hobby, as well as star photography guidance. Deep sky objects were also viewed with a telescope. The disadvantages of wasted light, and especially glare, did not need to be demonstrated, the bright lights of the beach, with considerable lateral leakage, were learned to be kept behind the back at all times. By crunching the picture, I made both the Milky Way and the public visible. #bongaalinnunrata

On se hienoa, että bongaus on lähtenyt liikkeelle noin isolla joukolla ja säätkin on suosineet havaintoja nyt muutamina iltoina!
