Noctilucent clouds are phenomena seen during the summer twilight (June and July for the northern hemisphere and December and January for the southern). It is caused by sunlight striking stratus clouds at a height of around 82km.
Honor Wheeler’s Images
“I was holidaying in Kelling and had the very good luck of seeing Noctilucent Clouds on the last night I was there.
Below are some images I managed to snap. I must admit that the clouds were so extensive that I didn’t think they were NLC’s! I was not prepared either, the only lens I had on me was a 70 – 300 lens which didn’t do the scale of the clouds justice. “
