Hello all, I observed the display of NLC last night 20190723_24 here at Tarbatness. First seen at local midnight (2300UT) as a bright thin wisp on the low northern horizon. The display did not develop much until around 00:30 UT when further wisps were seen east of north on the horizon . At that time predicted tropospheric cloud began to gather and form in the south and these heavy clouds developed and stopped further observations of the NLC display. I attach an image taken at 00:36 UT when the display, although still low, was beginning to develop at higher altitudes and the trop clouds are seen approaching.
