Absolutely spectacular Noctilucent cloud display over N. Ireland tonight and one of the best I have seen in years extending across 180 degrees of sky and over 30 degrees high and must have been a borderline type 5 brightness display at one point. The NLCs were beautiful glowing vivid white then blue colour with complex structure which looked very solid in profile and more akin to the quality of the displays I observed in 2009. Of note were the graceful whirls, herringbone, sharp bands and lacunosus holes, the NLCs were even casting shadows onto other NLC forms. Captured from outside Maghera with a distant farm house on a hill for foreground with Canon 600D and 24-70mm F/2.8 lens.
