These night shining clouds, are “tenuous cloud-like phenomena in the upper atmosphere of Earth. They consist of ice crystals and are only visible during astronomical twilight.”

Noctilucent roughly translates as “night shining” from Latin. We are sure you will agree these are just beautiful images.

Tom’s images are available to buy from his website here.
