Clearly visible night shining clouds - 8.7.2022 at 00.55 - 8.7.2022 at 02.55 Kouvola Observation number 107737

Visibility III / V

Tero Sipinen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

At 0:55, looking out the window, there were night clouds at least from the northeast to the southeast and all the way to the zenith, so there was reason to take a closer look from the yard and with a camera.

image 1, 1.09, south

figure 2, 1.10, southeast

picture 3, 1.12, Northeast

figure 4, 1.12, north

The next time I looked (only) through the window in two countries, they were still visible.

Next inspection shortly before three. Then the lines were no longer visible in the north. I still went to the yard to document the streaks.
