SkyWatch #33



My entry this week is a phenomenon called Noctilucent Clouds. I took the photos last year in july, from midnight to 2.oo a.m. I just couldn't go to bed! It was so beautiful to watch these bright clouds over Oslo, continual changing in shapes and colour!

You can read more about the clouds here: Astronomy Picture of the Day

Noen ganger sukker man tungt å føler seg så amatørmessig oppi trøndelagen her..., og den følelsen har jeg nå... MEN så tenker men, en plass må man jo begynne og en lærer jo som kjent etterhvert. DESSUTEN kan jeg nyte dine vakre bilder, og tenke; jeg lever, dette kan jeg se, og du så heldige vi er som kan oppleve en himmel som er så vakker og stadig i forandring. Deilig.

Ha en fin fin kveld.

Dessa bilder är fenomenala. Jag tror att jag aldrig sett något lika vackert och storslaget. Stum av häpnad och beundran.
Du tar hem alla tiders pris för bästa himmel bilder.

I don't suppose you remember the exposure and ISO you used for those shots of the city with the clouds overhead. Those are magnificent! (And tricky!)

Are these similar to the auroras? Ionization of the atmosphere?

Who would have wanted to go to bed!
They are exceptional. I just LOVE the first one. Looks like a big dark curtain coming to fold over the clouds.

My post is at Carletta’s Captures.

earthtoholly sa...

These are all beautiful! If you turned your first photo upside down, it would look a little like the ocean and sandy beach with a starry sky above :o)

VALKYRIEN sa...

earthtoholly; You gave me quite a laugh! I did what you said (I just had to ) - and you are correct! Next wednesday I will post it upside down on "Watery Wednesday"! LOL!

I knew I was going to like this before I could even see the full picture. Wow!!! I can see why you would rather watch this than go to bed. It's scary looking, fascinating and breathtaking all at the same time. Wonderful shots!

A wonderful phenomenon to captur. Amazing how theu light up the landscape. The last one is like an illustration of wraiths in a fairy tale.

Lene sa...

I all verden så tøft dette var!! Vet søren ikke om jeg har sett maken, og jeg går ganske mye med nesa i sky ;)

Herlige vårtegn, tross alt, nedenunder her. Nåååå lengter vi ekstra her, ja! Men om ikke så altfor lenge....... Og det er godt å tenke på :)

Ha en alle tiders helg :)
