Noctilucent Clouds from Mull of Galloway Lighthouse.

We are on holiday staying at one of the light-keeper’s cottages at the Mull of Galloway lighthouse at the moment. The views here are extensive all around on the headland and the dark sky quality is very high, well minus the bright blue beam of the new LED light that has just been installed in the lighthouse it is! At midnight I took the dog out for a walk and was greeted with panoramic noctilucent clouds spanning the northern horizon – the best view I have ever had. They changed constantly with bands and swirls, ripples and waves. I stood out there on top of the prehistoric burial mound above the lighthouse compound for two hours in an increasingly chilly wind, but it was well worth it !
