Milky way - 17.10.2017 at 20.56 Turku Observation number 67645

Visibility III / V

Sakari Ekko, Turun Ursa

#bongaalinnunrata Finally a bright evening. Ruissalo's Saaronniemi opens up a moderately wasteless sky between the south and the west, so the cape is a popular place to shoot when there is no time to go further. This time the view was somehow dim and the sky around the horizon was lighter than usual - was it due to the cloud of smoke and dust mentioned in the news the next morning? I crunched an image like this, but the contrast to the eye was considerably weaker; especially near the horizon the Milky Way was just barely visible.

Tuolla otsalampulla voi paikata odotusta seuraavasta valokuvauksellisesta komeetasta!

Korjaus havaintoaikaan: 16.10.2017 kello 20:56.

Jostain syystä (olisikohan syy tässä näppäimistön ääressä?) havaintoajaksi oli livahtanut kuvan lähetyshetki.
