    Wow, excellent photos :unknw:

    Bet your glad you did wake up at that time.

    Dont know much about them, can they be seen anywhere or just certain places, and is there certain times of the year when it happens, would be intresting to know.

    Nice pics! Their cousins, Nacreous / Polar stratospheric clouds (as oposed to Noctilucent / Polar mesospheric clouds) are seen reasonably often here in winter

    While more common, your Polar mesospheric clouds we dont really see, as it never really gets dark enough. I posted some pics of Nacreous clouds here a while back, but those shots of yours are lovely :doh: well done

    Thanks all. I must admit I'd assumed noctilucent clouds to be fainter and - from this latitude - much nearer the horizon. I've been looking out for them for a couple of years (they're usually best seen around midnight in June and July - N Ireland and N England tend to be the favoured spots in the UK) - it was just lucky that last night there was a particularly impressive display, the front cleared leaving clear skies behind and I just happened to wake when they were at their peak!

    If anyone is interested nocticulent clouds are starting to appear now,

    they're very faint at the moment but hopefully the skies will remain

    cloudless so a good show after midnight.
