Hey, welcome to the forum! Those of us in Northern Ireland missed that display due to wall to wall cloud - great shots, especially with Cassiopeia present. Did you send them to Spaceweather.com?

Cheers,

Paul.

Hi, and welcome to the forum. Thanks very much for sharing your great NLC images with us, I really like the 2nd image with the nice structure with Cass at the top of the frame  Smiley. Let's hope for more major displays for the rest of the season.

Hi Mark, lovely images which show the vivid electric blue colour extremely well. I recall that display, it had strange structure with lens-shaped loops/holes which can be seen on your image. Thanks for sharing, and glad you got the images sorted using a host. Cheers  Smiley

Spotted an NLC display last night (June 22/23rd) from 03.00 - 03.30 BST during advanced twilight. It was the faintest display I have seen this season yet and appeared at type 1 brightness which required averted vision to see. They peaked at type 2 in the form of bands/wisps of white and blue colours and could be seen moving over the brighter stars of Aries. They were very crisp in binos. By 03.30 they had moved over Jupiter, into the zenith through the Summer triangle, then into the S. I didn't take images because they were not photogenic.

Very promising Lightlord! I have crystal clear skies here. It has been exceptionally clear this evening. Regrettably I have to chair a 5 hour meeting tomorrow so time-lapse camera is going to have to keep an eye out for me Sad

Nice display here tonight, started quiet but a band of distinctive NLC glow appeared on the northern horizon about 00:30 BST, gradually growing in height, becoming more extensive & getting more complex; by 0237 BST (June 24th) this was the view looking north east

Rather more cloud than you but this was taken at 03:20BST. A nice batch of ripples that persisted until dawn.
