If anyone is interested there is a bright and extensive NLC display in progress NOW reaching up to Capella in altitude, best display for some time!

That's great guys, glad you're managing to get some views.  :thumbsup:

Not quite as high in altitude now, more diffuse with less structure but very bright ...sometimes these displays pick as sky brightens, however I'm off to my bed now.  :coffee:

Nice images Damian, although NLC's are predominantly blue in appearance you often see a yellowish/green cast in the lower portions of displays nearer to the north horizon while the upper edge is often tinged with red all due to refraction through the ice crystals, looks like you have captured a little red here on the upper edge.

Thanks Mike 

I shall pass the photo comments onto Soupy. Just wish I had been in Kielder to see them with him. Lucky man

Yes indeed Damian and Mike. The display was pretty intense. Top picture was as they appeared with 5 sec exposure I think. Bottom was shorter but with temperature changed to bring out the blue colour. Shame I had them all to myself! ;-)

Nice to see these beautiful clouds starting to appear again!, they really are one of the highlights of the summer.

      Great view of noctilucent clouds this morning from the beach at Selsey, West Sussex. A very extensive display which elevated in altitude quite considerably over time. Last structures disappeared from view around 04:16 BST.

      This is a timelapse of an NLC display I photographed in Northumberland on the 16th June this year, I was using a 50mm lens on a Sony A7s.

      The noctilucent cloud is in the upper right of the image, hovering over some beautiful pink and purple-tinged lower level clouds just after sunset during last year's autumnal equinox. A single 1/1250s exposure at f/5, 155mm, shot with a Nikon D50. No processing. One of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen!

      Hello everyone! It's been a while since I've been on this forum...
      On June 16 I was lucky enough to capture my first ever display of Noctilucent clouds, and naturally took plenty of pictures. I was lucky to be in a location in Durham with a good view to the North, and conveniently, the cathedral was to the North too!
      This photo was taken late in the display, as most of the NLCs were beginning to fade away. This patch of NLC was one of the last ones visible, and lower, much less interesting clouds were beginning to creep in & block the view. However, for this short period of time, everything aligned together nicely to create an interesting shot.
      Taken with my Canon EOS 1100D, with the stock variable-zoom lens set at 49mm. 40s exposure at ISO 100 on a fixed tripod, processed (various enhancements) with Camera Raw & Photoshop.

      Better luck this morning with NLC very low on NNE horizon over London recorded from bedroom window ;-) 
      How do you estimate the NLC range from its altitude above the horizon knowing the angular width of the photo?
