2008-as részletes statisztika - Detailed Statistics for 2008

A képre kattintva látható a nagyobb változat. A táblázatban nem szerepel a Kern-ív, amit szabad szemmel nem láttunk, de Marko lefotózott Kilpisjärviben.

I see some "once in a lifetime" halo observations like blue spot, lowitz, contact and helic arc. The last is still stuck in Finland and in the poles. Did you also count in the 27th January sub-moon ?

Helic was a lamp display in Finland. It came out in Marko's photo, I spoiled mine. You also had Lowitz, I saw that in your table. My Lowitz was the Parry display I had on 12 November with the two upper Parry arcs and the contact arc. That was truly memorable. As for the moon display, I did not count them separately like you did. So all the lunar halos are added to the solar ones, thus the submoon is one of the 4 January subsuns. The same with parhelia and paraselene, they are grouped together. Actually I had 12 lunar 22° halos, 3 times paraselene, 1 submoon, 3 tangent arcs

Congratulations Ágnes! It is really fantastic achievement to see so many and so various halos!

On average you see one halo every three days. Not bad ;) Unfortunately, my duties often don't let to observe sky and I haven't so many observations. But last year I catch for example Wegener, 9* halo and Bishop's ring so I am satisfied.

Your observations from Finland were marvellous! I hope to visit this country one day ... of course to "hunt" halos. On my list of phenomena which I want to see there are also PSCs and nice auroras.

Did you write something about submoon? I must have been missed this post.

Thanks, Jakub. Actually, I'm quite lucky with my workplace, it allows me to spend time with halo observation. I've never seen a Wegener arc, surely that was a memorable catch for you!
