Observing location
Tarbatness Highland Scotland
Hello all, There was a display of NLC seen here at Tarbatness last night. First seen at 01:00 UT. Large flat looking ribbons of cloud stretched over the zenith and toward the west. These faded quite quickly after about half an hour. Then more filimentary looking NLC were seen forming over the bright Northern horizon. These continued to spread from the Northern horizon towards the West. they were still present at dawn. Two images attached showing the ribbons overhead and the horizon NLC.
