I keep looking out for them with little joy. (midnight last night)

But it would seem 02:00hrs or there abouts is a good time to spot them at this time of the year.

I went out just after 11 and there was lots visible but by the time I'd decided to get the camera out it had reduced considerably and had dissappeard by midnight. Presumably the sun was too low to illuminate them by then (2 1/2 hours after sunset). Steve quotes the time as 2:00 UT which is 3:00 BST and puts it in the well within the 2 1/2 hours prior to sunrise.

There was a couple of long nocti clouds on display once the normal clouds moved this am but with it getting lighter the contrast was very poor.


I must find out my fisheye for the larger displays.
