NLCs June 2010

The NLC season has started, although a lot of sightings have been lost due to cloud cover.  A typical spring!!! 

The first report I received was from Alastair McBeath in Morpeth for the night 11/12 June.

This Display was also seen by Alastair MacBeath in Morpeth. 


Alastair also saw a good display the next night, 15/16 June. 


Alastair got the next sighting on the 20/21, quite a weak display this time 


I got my first contact on the 22/23  from Glenbarry.  It was very weak, like a Y shapped con-trail.


Alastair saw a weak display on the 24/25 from Morpeth.
