Noctilucent clouds are ice crystals which form at the edge of the earth's atmosphere, about 50 miles high. They are lit by the sun long after it has set on our horizon. A magical phenomena.
It has been a beautiful day again, a breeze so it doesn't feel hot.
The tups were shorn this morning and the Herdwick hoggs. This week is a big week, with lots of gathering and sorting lambs and on Friday the rest of the hoggs and the eild (barren) ewes will be shorn too.
