I've managed to get a panoramic image of the noctilucent clouds from last night, the brightest display I've ever seen of them. They took the limelight off the comet unfortunately! This was at about 03:20 (BST) this morning, Nottingham, looking north, the panorama is about 120 degrees wide, with due north pretty much in the centre of the image.
