    With a another clear night of viewing forecast ...and with the Norwegain radar  picking up NLC signals now...around 70°N latitude.

    Much the same as last night.....so i would expect to see a similar display this evening

    When does noctilucent season end? I’m pretty sure I see them most summers at some point.

    Night Shining NLCs, Noctilucent clouds are the highest clouds in our atmosphere. Rare and beautiful enough to cause excitement and awe. How to spot these summer...

    radar activity has been strong all day....so i believe that they are there but we just have to wait until they `pop` and show themselves

    worth a look to the Northern skies though

    I joined a forum, and asked a question... and apparently at this time of the year they arent so forthcoming after sunset. The consensus was that they dont usually appear before 1 am.. But by mid June they are more common in the evening..

    no wonder ive missed so many! lol

    it`s all about the angle of the Sun and the changing arc over the summer months.....i have got an article somewhere which i`ll post later

    looking back at our earlier forums tends to agree thier consensus

    Maybe the middle of June as seen by @Jamiee images are the sweeetest time of the season

    We`re all hear to learn so it might be helpfull if the forum was linked

     

    Fiant display this morning at the same altitude as yesterdays sightings

    Took a little drive last night up the A537, Buxton road about 12.15am,  far reaching views over Stockport, Manchester. Capella clearly visible.  Unfortunately didn't catch any NLCs.  Perhaps we left it too late and the sun had gone too far below the horizon.  Going to try again tonight about 11pm depending on any cloud coverage. The sun sets here about 9.28, will 11pm be a good time to try, I'm learning and value any one's help.  Loving all the videos and photos on this thread, thank you for making the effort.

    If the moon is new and the forecast good then there is a great chance of a spectacular display on northward facing coasts during June and July. If faint then a camera will pick them up best.. on Saturday night they were really bright around 2am and could be picked up easily with the naked eye and even a camera phone. Well worth it if you can get a clear northward view..

    First pic is Iphone, second is dslr down to 2 secs iso 400 low f number

    Well it looks like we`re heading into a frustrating part of the season when the Noctilucent clouds are expanding over the pole...Unfortunately  the viewing forecast is not good for the foreseeable

    It will be interesting to see what we are missing

    @mushymanrobI stiil cant find the article i mentioned....but have found another article on twilights which may help answer you question

    Did you know that there exists three types of twilight and that these specific times of the night have properties and phenomena of their own?

    Indeed Rob....if only for a clear night....which looking at the forecasts we may have a clearer Evening/ Morning for the overnight period

    I`m encouraged by the latest radar signals from both the Norwegian radar and for the first time this season the Baltic radar which are picking up signals at there specific latitudes

    Norwegian radar at picking up signals at 69° latitude

    1279154834_marso5-06.thumb.png.25fe1954550b28ba7a6e0d20fca0b6b1.png

    And the Baltic radar picking up signals at 54° latitude this morning were it seemed to 'glitch out'

    We were so lucky to get a clearance in the cloud cover as the display started. Managed to take quite a few pics before cloud loomed again on the horizon, but here's just one for now. I'm sure Arni's will be amazing, as he has a better and higher vantage point than me.
