I watched the noctilucent clouds between 1:30-2:15 UTC. It was a very nice display in the northwestern sky with cirrus-like banks and waves. At certain moment the NLC reached up to 45-50 ° altitude and I could easily see them drift towards the west. After 2:15 UTC the NLC slowly faded due to increasing twilight. I took the pictures with a Sony DSC-W17 camera (f=2.8 - 4.0, 100 ISO, 4-7 seconds exposure times).
