    Ok, so probably not as much use to us now but it is good to know that the satellite didn't have to be put down. ?

    Are the Noctilucent clouds still visible in the UK during late Summer? 

    Clear sky last night and then the view below appeared just after sunset - could this have been type 2 (Bands - Lines) NCL?

    It was silver to begin with then orange/red in the post sunset glow. (Very similar to confirmed NCL back in June)

    I also saw what I thought was NLC clouds last night just after sunset.

    Great photos! ?

    It is my understanding that NLC's can still be visible in the UK until late Summer, albeit with much less probability. There is a comment some pages back in this thread by Weather-History seeing them in September in a previous year! The daily daisy charts also suggest there are some NLC's still out there but looking rather sparse now.

    As to if the images are instances of NLC's, I really am not qualified in any way to answer that! From snippets of information I have been picking up in the last few weeks, there is quite a lot of "stuff" in the upper atmosphere at the moment due to volcano eruptions and wildfires. These have been leading to some spectacular sunsets in some areas. Perhaps something to consider also? ?
