Summary: Solar activity continues to increase after a two-year solar minimum that ranks among the century's deepest. The return of sunspots and a resurgent solar wind is good news for aurora watchers, who are seeing some of the best displays since ~2006. See also June 2010.

June 16, 2010 was forecasted to have a very large Aurora event, unfortunately at my location the activity was very low with the exception of a 3 minute window. I was not disappointed though... another visual night time phenomena showed up with a spectacular display. “Noctilucent Clouds” Noctilucent clouds are composed of tiny crystals of water ice up to 100 nanometres in diameter and exist at a height of about 76 to 85 kilometres (47 to 53 mi), higher than any other clouds in Earth's atmosphere. Canon 5D2, 5-10second exposures, ISO 320-800.

What an incredible night, I saw 3 passes of ISS and faint Aurora Borealis appeared on the Northern sky at the same time. Bright clouds on the left side was lit by thunder lightning. Later I could see partial lunar eclipse as well. Canon EOS 5D MarkII, Kiss X3 (500D), EF24/1.4LII, Sigma 8/3.5
