Clearly visible night shining clouds - 21.6.2020 at 00.40 - 21.6.2020 at 02.10 Espoo Observation number 91326

Visibility III / V

While admiring the “Nightless Night,” I noticed clearly visible night clouds from the balcony high southwest. Clothes on and a camera backpack. Going by car to the observation location where the pictures were taken. At the observation site, visibility was from southwest to northeast.

picture 1 at 01.29 (approx. lunch - northwest)
picture 2 at 01.40 (approx. west - northwest)
picture 3 at 01.54 (approx. west - northwest)

The show started to fade from the southwest direction and somewhat after two ended completely.

Kiitos Timo! Kyllä kannatti ihailla yöpilviä ja muutenkin nauttia lähes tyynen kesäyön tunnelmasta, väri- ja äänimaailmasta :)

Ajatella, että Yöttömänä yönä ja vielä Juhannuspäivänä silti nähtiin yöpilvet! Näin lounas-luode-suunnassa korkealla lähellä zeniittiä.
