Most definitely the best NLC this year so far. Was out at 3 am. I couldn't see them earlier due to clouds.
Panorama of 5 images stitched together with Photoshop Elements 9s panorama function. Worked superbly, no corrections needed. Just a bit of cropping. Jupiter is visible to the far right.

A couple of zoomed in shots. Haven't seen these dark "holes" before in NLCs.

There were NLC right from the begining of the evening, though pretty weak. But at around 2:30 am they began to gain in strength.
I captured these images betwen 2:45am to 3:00am.
Captured with Canon EOS 500D, EF-S 18-55mm IS.
Panorama 1 - 6 images at 18mm, f4.5, ISO 200 and 2 second exposures. The green blob on the right is a lensflare reflection. Jupiter is visible to the right.
