Crepuscular rays

27.6.2022 at 00.05 - 00.15 - Turku (III)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

There are now enough twilight rays for the third night in a row. The mind would still go to the terrain to look at the other party as well, but now I have to sleep in between and settle for this one picture I took from my balcony.

Hyvin heikkoja yöpilviä

26.6.2022 at 01.00 - 01.20 - Sauvo (I)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

About a quarter of this was a small and dim night cloud area with the naked eye a little from north to northwest. Both images also in confidence.

Crepuscular rays

Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

A separate observation of the twilight rays, although there is the same picture as in the night cloud observation. The rays were better visible in the past, but when the Scene was found, the rays were already starting to fade.

Crepuscular rays

25.6.2022 at 00.18 - 00.22 - Nousiainen (IV)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

In the first picture, the twilight rays first. In the second and triangular images, the rays propagate in the eastern sky towards the perspective point of the opposite side of the Sun, at the same time changing into the rays of twilight. The four-and-a-half image already shows clear rays of twilight, the latter using a light blur mask (USM). EDIT: Added to the end collage of views from opposite directions.

Clearly visible night shining clouds

24.6.2022 at 00.50 - 01.15 - Rusko (III)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

The illuminating night clouds first began to appear between the north and the northeast. The focus then shifted north and finally the show began to fade even before the darkest moment of the night.

One halo form

21.6.2022 at 22.00 - Turku (I)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Quite a real side sun. There was a dimmer one on the left that I didn't have time to photograph.

Dim night shining clouds

16.6.2022 at 00.20 - 01.00 - Rusko (II)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Again, one long frosted belt began to stand out in the east at about 00.20. The night clouds then improved slightly and waves also appeared. By now, there didn’t seem to be much improvement, so I left the observation in it. EDIT: Added reliable versions. The shapes come out much better in these dim night clouds, from which no works of art are very easy to get ;-)

Pollen corona

15.6.2022 at 22.15 - 22.20 - Rusko (IV)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

The pollen circle of pine was sometimes so mind-boggling in some areas that it still had to be described in remembrance and statistics. In the evenings, these are at their most handsome when there is a lot of pollen in the air.

Clearly visible night shining clouds

15.6.2022 at 01.00 - 02.00 - Rusko (III)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

The first illuminating night clouds of the season are for themselves. The clouds first began to appear extensively to the east and southeast, then to the west, and finally to almost the entire sky. However, I chose that 7/8 part as the scope, which is perhaps close to the truth. The brightness of this play would have been plentiful if the background sky hadn’t been so bright on the nights of June. EDIT: Added a couple of cluttered images to the end and as a comparison gif animation (norm / usm)

Other storm phenomenon

I set off late today, but the thundercloud of the day was still detectable.

22 ° ring in a very foggy sky.

Pollen corona

6.6.2022 at 22.40 - 22.45 - Mynämäki (III)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

It was a little late to look at the pollen in the evening, but yes it was visible there when I got to the area where the visibility was low enough to feel the horizon.

Several halo forms

4.6.2022 at 20.55 - 21.40 - Mynämäki (II)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

First the side suns on both sides and finally another 22 ° ring.

The pollen season for pine began with quite a rumble after a bad birch season.

Primary rainbow

28.5.2022 at 20.10 - 20.25 - Aura (III)
Mikko Peussa, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

I followed the dark approaching cloud front of my time. When the first raindrops came from the sky, a rainbow also began to stand out.
