    We were so lucky to get a clearance in the cloud cover as the display started.

    Cracking photo bye the way...you can see the same local clouds in your image as i was looking at but from a different anglethese local clouds made for some strange cloud paterns...Looks like a Banksy to me.....especially after a couple of rums

    Thanks! When I upgraded my phone, I specifically got one with a good low light camera, so I could take noctilucent cloud pics.

    There was definitely some striking cloud formations- one looked like an eye, whilst there was a face in the noctilucents! Ain't paradolia great!

    Yep...A bit of a frustrating night/ morning for the UK....apart from a faint early showing to the NNW in the evening...

    1167314969_3007.thumb.jpg.5b8fc699130de06316de682d3fac9f2b.jpg.

    Once the cloud moved in and we lost site of the stars...game over

    Although looking at the photo`s from northern Europe there was obviously a large display taking place

    Around nautical twilight time around 2.45am when the morning light starts encroaching it begins to get very tempting...and has caught me out a few times.....rule of thumb. no stars no NLC`s

    1183173789_1470.thumb.jpg.e98413f291eff3a0f807686d1636c233.jpg

    963475954_1938.thumb.jpg.285e3e8fb0ba36bf53c59f80285e36ac.jpg

    then throw some wispy lower cloud into the mix and it does make for a very inconclusive images (Fools Gold)

     So frustrating... but happy that there was a good display for some

    Another cloudy night forcast..but the radars are still indicating strong signals......so im sure our time will come again

    Norway radar 70° latitude..

    I woke up briefly about 2.45am, had a look out my bedroom window and saw a small glimpse of what l thought were NLCs, my view is obscured by buildings, so I only have a small patch of sky with northerly views. Tempted as l was to jump in the car to go to my vantage point, I didn't as my alarm goes off at 5.45 for work.  I have managed to book next week off, so I'm hoping for a chance to catch  a morning show then.  I just wish my house was that few feet taller.

    I've only ventured out once this season 30th May, saw faint low NLCs Just before 1am on 1st June looking north from East Lothian

    Article from last year

    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 twilight clouds.

    It was a strange one in Birmingham this morning I witnessed a set clouds that i have never seen before

    Firstly the speed at which they appeared the disappeared 13 Mins
    They came out of a clear sky ( stars were visible)
    Clear on SAT radar over the Midlands at the time
    They appeared to be travelling Southwards ( so not like any NLC`s that i know about )

    There was some chat in the facebook forum about what was being picked by the OSWIN radars, which is within a few degrees latitude of Birmingham

    Opinions Welcome


     timelapse
    13 mins over 27"

    • Heat ebbing and flowing as thunderstorms brew for the second half of the week

      For the UK as a whole, the heat and sunshine will peak today (Sunday). But hot, humid weather will still have big a part to play next week, even as cooler, fresher air tries to move down from the northwest. And that combination could result in fireworks. Read the full update here

      Analysis: Heat this weekend before a breakdown next week

      A strong ridge of high pressure building in from the Azores this weekend will culminate in very warm or hot Sunday, but gradually cooling off next week and turning increasingly unsettled from mid-week. View the full blog here
