Bright night shining clouds

I went after midnight to see if anything could be seen in the night sky, there were clear night clouds in the north, I followed them until half past three, during which time I could see very beautiful ripples in the clouds. It's great to be able to see a decent night cloud show here in the south at this point in August.

Today there were a lot of clouds, it just rained, there was a few flashes of lightning, I tried several times to look for halos on the fibrous edges of the clouds and I found them, the crooked curve of the curve, but it's probably only part of the 22 upper side opening and not a 22 tire.

The first impression of checking the night sky was that it is completely overcast, but in the north, low in the clouds, a bright streak of night clouds could be seen, so I stayed to follow for a while. A few distant flashes of lightning were also visible in the northwest sky.
