Pre-solstice Noctilucent clouds surprise

What a wonderful surprise in the morning 20 June 2017! When alerted the temperature in the mesosphere is higher than needed for Noctilucent clouds apearance, the hope to see the phenomenon in the Czech Republic was almost on a zero. But just days before the northern summer solstice the temperature went down and NLCs developed at last! This view shows their visibility in the dawn over the Proseč village. While observing it, crescent Moon rose up as well, giving to the phenomenon even higher level of beauty. Used Canon 6D, Takumar 50 mm, f2.8, ISO 400, panoramas from tripod.
