I think these are Noctilucent clouds ( high level cloud visible after sun down ), captured 14th June approximately 10pm in the NW sky with a couple of con trails.    Please correct me if I'm wrong :) 

Canon 1300D

ISO 400

Shutter speed 1-400 sec

F 5.4

Focal length 21mm.

Latitude 51 N

A little polishing with Photoshop.

I'm sure there will be some great images posted over the next couple of months and I look forward to them :) 

Nige.

Hi

I think that they are 'normal' clouds doing a very good impression of NLCs...

...I think the best time to be looking would be after 23:00 BST.

spaceweather.com has a gallery of NLC images.

I'm hoping to get some images soon!

Good luck.

Paul

I keep looking, but nothing yet - those clouds in that photo are certainly the closest I've seen so far.
