To my great surprise, just over a week later I had a third NLC display visible, although not as bright as the earlier two.  This is looking like a vintage year for these; I do not remember seeing so many so close together at any time previously.  This particular display was either not as extensive as the other two had been, or I missed most of it, but I was still able to obtain some passable images.
