      Wonderful Ian. I suppose something will be terribly wrong with the weather – much more than there already is – when noctilucent shows up in Phoenix Michael :)

      Last weekend noctilucent was seen in large parts of northern Europe. Might there be any connection with the extreme warm weather now on the continent?

      Thank you Michael and Hans, not sure, but this was likely to have been the most widespread outbreak of noctilucent clouds ever observed over Europe, it certainly was the most impressive and  extensive display I have ever witnessed in my neck of the woods or anywhere…Lets hope for more to come…

      Just read this

      “On June 9th noctilucent clouds were spotted in California, as far south as 33 °N – a new record! Combined with the historic June 21st outbreak, this is certainly the most active NLC season on record”.

      Thanks Ian. I am amazed about the latitudes it has been observed. Checking atoptics on this you will find:

      The short summer nights of latitudes of 50 – 65° reveal the highest clouds – noctilucent or ‘night shining’ clouds.” and “NLCs are seen further south. They have been sighted in Europe as far south as Austria, Hungary, Italy and southern Germany. In the US they have been seen in Utah and Colorado.

      I understand that records are set with this outbreak. I am very curious whether there is any explanation for this.

      I did not found any explanation (yet) for the recent outbreak of noctilucent clouds Ian. I just found this link with a description of where and when they were visible until now ending with a mass of excellent pictures worthwhile to watch.

      It was the density and brightness of them that intrigued me, as seen on some of those…..Excellent info and imagery, thanks Hans….

      Here it is – lovely image.
