I have a question, do not you think it's too hot for this time of year?

Are you talking to me? Because if you are then YES! but it has been cloudy but now it's sunny again. :D
I'm good when it comes to Physics, Algebra, Relativity, Space, and SpaceEngine. But I could still use a LOT of help on the things I still don't know. So I hope I get a lot of help on how all that works, here!

Hot?  It's 13:00, partly cloudy, 11C here.  The heatwave is definitely gone.  But the forecast said 7C and rain, so can't complain.

It's hot for me! Even though it's cloudy and it's raining it's somehow still been hot hot HOT!

I just saw a bright display of noctilucent clouds!  My first time seeing them, which was also while kayaking, on a glowing tide of bioluminescence.  Simply magic.

I didn't have the DSLR but did get some shots with the phone right before the battery died.  Hopefully they turn out half-decent.

Please post whatever you have.

There have been some reports of noctilucent clouds over Northern Europe this summer, but I haven't seen any myself yet.  Some summers they are frequent, other summers they are not.

Just transferred images from phone and they were quite bad.  But at least it captured it.  To help reduce noise somewhat I blended the last 5 shots taken in quick succession before the battery died:

These were taken at 3:50am, while sunrise was at 5:20am.  When I first noticed it I thought it was aurora, then thought "wait a minute, I have never seen aurora with this intense color."  Electric blue, quite bright and illuminated everything like a false dawn.  The clouds continued to spread out from the north-northeast and rose up to maybe 20° elevation before fading in the growing twilight.  Really spectacular.

Cool.  Looks like the real thing.  July 2014 had some serious horizon-to-horizon activity several nights over here and I recorded this:

I was in the Rondane mountains last week, and it was just blue skies and hot.  Which is quite unusual weather, I've never experienced anything like it in that region.  This was the view from Storronden, 2138 masl.
