Visibility I / V
#bongaalinnunrata I tried to catch the Milky Way on a cell in Luolavuori, a couple of kilometers from the center of Tutu. The shooting landscape is away from the center, but the sky is very light. The Milky Way is barely visible in the original image; I have processed this image to improve the contrast. With the naked eye I could not detect the Milky Way.
At the same time, I paid attention to the efficient floodlights at the nearby heating center, which are directed horizontally and also dazzle the traffic coming to the center downright dangerously. In addition, the road section itself is unlit, and truck traffic is considerable. It seems that, in general, excessively bright floodlights in industrial plants and warehouses, etc., are directed horizontally or even above it.
