Noctilucent clouds over Oslo

Such an amazing moment! Warm summer’s night, with a calm sea reflecting the wonderous sky.

A few years ago the noctilucent clouds were frequent and extraordinarily intense, but they seem to be more infrequent and less intense. Yet this can be conincidental, as a summer dominated by low pressures and only short glimpses of clear skies holds few opportunities to catch a glimpse of these extreme high altitude clouds of summer.
