Another night, another NLC display…

A beautiful clear night here last night, so come 01.00 off I trotted up to Kendal Castle again to look out for noctilucent clouds. And there was another display, but it was only a modest, subtle one, little more than a few thin bands and streamers parallel to the horizon in the NW sky. Still, better than nothing, and worth the trip up to the castle to get some nice photos. But there HAS to be a big display soon, surely..?

  2. Following your NLC reports with great interest. I keep seeing what seem to be cirrus high in the northern sky around 11:30 – 00:00 but never sure if they’re actually NLC. Is there a good way to tell between bog standard cirrus and NLC?
