Last night's display of Noctilucent clouds over Saltburn Pier.


They are the highest clouds in Earth's atmosphere, located in the mesosphere at altitudes of around 50 miles.


They are too faint to be seen in daylight, and are visible only when illuminated by sunlight from below the horizon while the lower layers of the atmosphere are in Earth's shadow.

I went to camp on Balnakeil beach near Durness on the north coast of Scotland this weekend to catch the sunset and sunrise. When I popped my head out of the tent about 1am for a look around, there was a nice display of noctilucent clouds above the northern horizon.

At end summer it is beginning to be sufficiently dark at midnight for noctilucent clouds and some stars.

I can't believe I missed focus on this perfect moment

Full moonlight and Aurora and Noctilucent clouds on the left.

Chasing the light or lights in the night is a fun thing to do, Have a happy Friday

Leuchtende Nachtwolken (NLC) auf Rügen


Endlich konnte ich in der letzten Nacht meine ersten leuchtenden Nachtwolken Fotografieren.

Diese sind relativ selten, nur von Anfang Juni bis mitte Juli zu sehen und entstehen nur wenn die Sonne 6° - 16° unter dem Horizont steht.

Es war halb eins und ich wollte gerade ins Bett, hab dann nochmal kurz Facebook durchgeguckt und siehe da, es werden NLC´s vorausgesagt, also Hosen an, Sachen gepackt und im Laufschritt zum Strand. War wunderschön anzusehen, bin dann zwar erst halb fünf eingeschlafen aber es hat sich gelohnt!

the high summer is the best time and probably the only time these near "Space" clouds can be seen at high latitudes . The sun is below the horizon but these clouds are still in sunlight.

I watched them for the first time. what a spectaculair view!

Noctilucent Clouds and Aurora is a rare combination having a GBH in the shot is a bonus

Noctilucent clouds. The picture was taken a little after midnight.


Tampere, Finland.


Valaisevat yöpilvet kuvattuna hieman keskiyön jälkeen.


After several nights of showers and thunderstorms this display appears tonight. View to the north.


Nach einigen Nächten mit Schauern und Gewittern zeigte sich dieser Blick auf sog. "Nachtleuchtende Wolken" am Nordhimmel.

If Mac had been calling Houston in summer time from the Local Hero phone box, this is what he'd have seen, no aurora in summer time, but these gorgeous noctilucent clouds... Living here and doing night photography is a recipe for very little sleep!!!

Just before midnight last Friday, I could see rare noctilucent clouds on the horizon behind Fort Pembroke. This photo is as shot, with no alterations to colours in photoshop

Tendrils of electric blue Noctilucent Clouds stretch across the northern skies late at night at the Point of Ayre. Winkie Lighthouse sits alone in silhouette against the burning orange of the never tending twilight which is a wonderful feature of the short summer nights. What a place to call home 🙌
