Guys,
Another big NLC display is starting to the North, go out and have a look.
I'm surprised its visible when its still so bright outside. This could be a great one !

Cool! Can see it clearly, even through the floodlights of the Midlands Prison here in Portlaoise!

We noticed this display before reading your alert Dave, but have only seen pictures of NLCs to date, so we weren't sure if it was a NLC display or not. Am inclined to think it is now after reading your post. Cheers!

Just had a peak outside the studio here in Tullamore, totally clouded over it looks like. Which is strage... I can't see any stars, but I can't see any light pollution either. But definitely no twilight glow or NLC's...

Sure was a nice one alright!
Those are great shots Dave.

I caught it a tiny bit too late for my liking though,
I would have liked to have caught the formation of them on film.
Although I did see it visually.

Still,
I got some pics and stuck together a time lapse & took some video...



Alos took some quick video, still learning how to use this
camera so it's rough but the optical zoom is good, I forgot
to bring the tele extender...doh!.... Next time!



And of course , regular images...

Thanks to Dave for the alert on the boards and Jonathan for the text!
I still managed to catch the ISS pass also! :silly:

Just updating myself now, on the way home after the show, all I can say was WOW! The apparent cloud cover I saw initially was just high altitude haze. The stars were out once I got out of the town. The NLC was fab. A very bright bar stretching left to right almost dissecting it in two in the upper half was very bright and ghostly. Wish I had my camera - I had it in the car for the past week but left it in the house yesterday!

Some really nice images there guys, well done. I can only remember one other time I saw a developing NLC display in such bright twilight, and that was about 2 or 3 summers ago, can't remember which.
