    I don't think so. The sun was too low under the horizon at the moment (20
    degrees) to see noctilucent clouds. The position due east is wrong too, for
    pre- local midnight hours. Any noctilucent clouds would be visible
    north-northwest, and only earlier in the night with the sun at less than 15
    degrees under the horizon. Or later in the night, with similar conditions
    Usually NLC's are much larger phenomena too, and they are rare at 45 degrees
    North latitude.
