About this image

I got distracted by work last night, and just as I was heading to bed at 2am CEST, I noticed that the northern sky had lots of odd-looking bright streaks across it. Having been a southerner until recently, I'd never seen noctilucent clouds before, but it was fairly obvious what they were. I was struck by how bright they were - I could see them out the window without turning the light out. They persisted for an hour before fading into dawn twilight.
