Noctilucent Clouds (June 19th 2018)

#1 Post by Brian » Tue Jun 19, 2018 9:21 am

I managed to get a mobile shot of these last year in July but this time was able to capture them with my "proper" camera. I've explained before what they are but as a refresher
Wikipedia says...
Noctilucent clouds, or night clouds, are tenuous cloud-like phenomena in the upper atmosphere of Earth. They consist of ice crystals and are only visible during astronomical twilight. Noctilucent roughly means "night shining" in Latin
