Noctilucent Clouds

Something a little different today. Last night many of us across England and Wales were lucky to see a splendid display of noctilucent clouds and these are some of the images I took between 11pm and 12pm BST

'Nocties' seem to appear more widely when there is low solar activity and this may be why they've been seen so much in the past couple of years - and according to New Scientist, these mysterious night-shining clouds may peak this year. Look out to the NW an hour or so after sunset, or more to the NE just as dawn starts to first lighting the horizon. June and July tend to be the best months.
