By coincidence today upon the BBC Weather Watchers website there is small collection of the elusive Notilucent clouds taken very recently in the northern part of the UK.
Link to the photos:-
An imaginative capture, Peter, of a rather rare cloud formation. Lovely colouring! Thanks.
Clouds and Light Houses – marvellous formula which certainly works well indeed with me.
The more I look at your photo, Kev, the more it grows on me.
Kind thanks for sharing this. 5* from me with no reservation.
Love this as too, the wonderful colours!
Ooooh wat mooi!!
Fine capture of a very rare to see event.
For a view of this rare cloud over central London – including the famous London Eye – take a look at this photo which comes from NASA’s APOD page:-
Four more very good photos, via the BBC. of this rare type of cloud seen recently in the north of the UK:-
Many thanks, John, for sharing this rather rare view. I would warmly urge members to take a look at John’s “For more, see here” introduction / invite to see more of these graceful rare clouds.
What is going on with the two “lights”? One is the moon but is the other a separate light source? The way they are lined up adds to the mystery of the photo. Lovely composition.
A pity authors who post photos onto the Photo Gallery do not respond to questions asked by viewers.
Very early noctilucents, great catch.
@Sharon my guess floodlights or a ship, street lights maybe.
@Laurence Yeah I notice that too. I don’t think many people use or even notice the comment section. Upside: Harder to find for would-be trolls :-)
Here’s an interesting video (2.45 minutes duration) taken from NASA’s Astronomy Picture Of the Day (APOD) website showing a very rare combination of Noctilucent clouds accompanied by Aurorae on the night of 4th & 5th August recent at Caithness, Scotland:-
Certainly worth watching! The text is informative too.
Excellent shot, Alan.
Alan, I’ve just come across an interesting video (2.45 minutes duration) taken from NASA’s Astronomy Picture Of the Day (APOD) website showing a very rare combination of Noctilucent clouds accompanied by Aurorae on the night of 4th & 5th August recent at Caithness, Scotland:-
