Dim night shining clouds - 20.6.2021 at 00.30 - 20.6.2021 at 01.00 Espoo Observation number 99014

Visibility II / V

As the night finally blurred, a glimpse from the balcony to the north, in hopes of observing the first, illuminating night clouds of the season. And there was no completely empty peek. A few belts were visible. A quick picture, after which I followed the development of the situation, if the night shooting trip had called. That didn’t happen, the show disappeared in half an hour from that area that was visible.
