Very nice picture, Dmitry!
A calm and serene view at sunset of Fili District, Moscow across the other side of the reflective, glass-like Moscow River on a cold, fine mid-winter’s evening in mid-February. The amazing, high-atmospheric, cold noctilucent clouds in the sky almost create an icy bridge linking one side of the Moscow to the other. Living in Canberra, Australia in the southern hemisphere at 35 degrees south latitude and 580m above sea level, I don’t see this particular cloud type very much, as the climatic conditions there aren’t right, even though we often do get fairly cold, dry winters with calm, clear, cold dark nights, followed by frosty mornings. Summers can be really hot and dry. From what I have seen in other cloud society member’s photos of noctilucent clouds in the past, it seems to appear in the much colder northern regions of the northern hemisphere such as Russia, Scandanavia, Canada, Alaska, Northern Scotland and Iceland where the climate conditions there are more favourable.

super composition Dmitry!
Very nice picture, Peter. The lower cumulonimbus clouds seen from the flight deck look almost like a volcanic eruption about to explode as the pressure inside them becomes greater, while the noctilucent clouds above make the night sky look a bit like it is a large, dark blue lake, moving with the wind that you can look straight down into and see plenty of reflections of the dramatic storm cloud’s activity below the surface.
