It is clouding up. Low, dark clouds which will bring us two days of rain. But these are not Noctilucent Clouds. According to this web site, noctilucent clouds are "clouds at extremely high altitude, about 85km, that literally (as the name suggests) shine at night." There are some very nice pictures. If you click on the "More Pictures" link on their main page, and then on the "back" link at the bottom of that page, you will reach an index with links to even more pictures of noctilucent clouds.

I found this site by doing a search on "clouds" at google. there were over 2,320,000 results. I could spend the rest of my life looking at web sites from that search and never get to all of them. But I'm glad I found this one.
