Visibility IV / V

Sakari Ekko, Turun Ursa

#bongaalinnunrata sky near Ylänen is dark to southern Finns, and I have spent numerous companies in this place. It is 40 km as the crow flies to the center of Turku, but the horizon to the south is still quite pale. I will also include one old (taken on 9 September 2013) picture from Enontekiö, because on my autumn trip this autumn, the clouds did not allow the Milky Way to be seen. The sky in Lapland is really dark, especially in Enontekiö, as there are no large ski resorts with illuminated slopes. The photo was taken just 10 km east of Enontekiö's largest agglomeration, Heta. Although the dark skies of Lapland are often plagued by northern lights ...

Focus: Figures 1 and 2 are taken in Yläne. the last in Enontekiö, as can be deduced from the great contrast between the Milky Way and the background sky.
