Hi frozen folks ! ;-)

Sorry, but it is NOT Noctilucent clouds.

Nevertheless, it s a BEAUTIFUL display of NACREOUS Clouds, a kind of Polar Stratospheric Clouds !

Congratulations and thank you very much to share it with us !

Yes, very beautiful nacreous (polar stratospheric) clouds. High latitudes (north or south) and very low stratospheric temperatures are needed to form them. Bharati is at ~70S.

Nobody can make up their mind what to call these, lol. I find it funny that this phenomenon is becoming very common, and not limited to polar regions, obviously if you have paid attention. Call it whatever, the clouds are the same as we had here last year, at 30 degrees North.
