You may have seen footage of these high-altitude phenomena separately, but I doubt in the same shot. Here together are aurora AND noctilucent (or night shining) clouds!

Both of the phenomena can be seen simultaneously about midway into the video.

The spectacular time lapse is brought to you by Maciej Winiarczyk, who recorded the scene in northern Scotland August 4 and 5.

Big tip of the hat to NASA’s Astronomy Photo of the Day Web site….
