Noctilucent clouds visible between clouds - 22.7.2021 at 00.50 - 22.7.2021 at 01.00 Sysmä Observation number 99834

Visibility I / V

Arja-Sisko Airila, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Overnight clouds. Indeed, a very small cloud gap showed that there are illuminating night clouds behind the clouds. The Hankasalmi camera showed that long belts were rising high. In Sysma, clouds rising from the west quickly began to cover the sky with a cloud, and a gusty wind blew. For ten minutes I watched the situation, but always the more stuffy the sky seemed to go, so I gave up and came away.

Pictures 1st Northwest 00:53, 2nd Northeast 00:53, 3rd Northwest 00:57.

Sentään kuitenkin vähän enemmän rakoa normipilvissä kuin Pohjanmaalla, täällä ei juurikaan nähnyt, onko yöpilviä taivaalla vai ei...
