I was driving back to Seitseminen, and I decided to have a break in Ikaalinen. Meanwhile, I gazed the sky for noctilucent clouds, but I couldn’t see anything. Instead, I was able to observe a rather rare lunar pollen corona! The pollen species that caused this pollen corona, was propably pine pollen. Pollen coronas are common phenomena in high latitudes during summer, but lunar pollen corona is a rather rare phenomena.
