Noctilucent Clouds - 11 July 2019 @ 23:25

Posted (edited)

It kind of amuses me that I am on the top of a cow pat filled hill at midnight taking a photo of a fairly spectacular noctilucent cloud display and probably 99.9% of the people in the houses captured are totally unaware of it.

Yes, this is a working farm and you could say that the cows are free-range as the fences have been flattened years ago. As a consequence their range is very far, luckily not around on this particular night.

Occasionally there's some horses in this field, there was the last time I went.

All a bit unnerving for a city boy like me, they can be a bit daft these animals 🤪

I spotted this display developing early on so kept an eye on it. It became quite impressive from my viewpoint overlooking the river Ribble near Clitheroe. Didn't get any pictures as I was attending my son's wedding function at the time!
