Display of NLC on 2016 July 6

Edited since I originally put the wrong date in the subject!

Following Sandra Brantingham's BAA alert sent at 0004 UTC I was on the lookout for NLC last night and there was a very nice display visible from Chelmsford. The attached image was taken at 0225 UTC looking east from a bedroom window. I've put a timelapse movie here:

This runs from 02:21 - 04:18 and shows the NLC being replaced by cirrus through to sunrise.

Nick.

NLC 6th July 2016

NLC display also well seen from Ipswich.  I took a few shots with a hand held camera from an upstairs window!

This one was taken at approx. 3.45BST

NLC 2016 July 05-06 at Alness, Scotland.

Hi all,

Certainly was a nice display. I left a camera on the bedroom window to record a timelapse and then went up to the local golf course to take some pictures/video. The main concern being to avoid falling into any bunkers in the half-light...left some footprints in the dew to bemuse any early golfers.
