Hello all, There was a bright extensive display of NLC seen here at Tarbatness last night 20180713_14 from Tarbatness.Images from different parts of the dispay attached. I took over 500 images with two cameras. This was a bright display for sure with many bright features seen.The display was constantly changing and spreading in both azimuth and altitude.Just before dawn the display looked it most impressive with ladder features and undulating clouds bordered by dark edges. At is most extensive the dispaly was more thn 120 degrees of azimuth and reahed almost to the zenith.
