The girl, planetary duo and the Noctilucent clouds

The „Noctilucent fever“ around the north polar circle is underway and lot of people around the northern world are seeking the NLCs as much as they can. And I totally understand why. Freezing beauty of the NLCs with its electric blue tint and the „cobweb“ structures is just incredible in every time of their sighting. In the moment of the evening 28th June 2015, my sister Kate was sitting on the beach of the Sec reservoir (the Czech Republic) as the planetary duo Venus-Jupiter was slowly moving over the western horizon and the Moon moved up behind her shoulder with its strong moonlit. Just when the night came over, we all – with not so far fisherman – witnessed stunning display of the NLCs too. The incredible view lasted almost an hour. Great experience, indeed. Especially for my sister who saw the NLCs first time in her life. Used Canon 6D IR Baader Mod, Samyang 24 mm, 2.8, ISO 3200, 4×6 s panorama; tripod.
