I've now found the original pictures I took and the date was 09 July 2009.I have a feeling I might have seen this same noctilucent cloud event also. I was in London and it was really quite spectacular, there was a large area of bright clouds reaching up towards the zenith.
The below article suggests June 2006, slightly over 15 years.
Your posting reminded me that I do remember also seeing Noctilucent clouds a few years before that when I lived in a tent on a campsite attached to a farm for a few years. I didn't have a camera then or a mobile phone that could take pictures. I can now remember pointing the clouds out to a young couple in the tent next to mine and them being very unimpressed. I'm sure I hadn't been homeless very long when I saw the clouds from the campsite and when I took the pictures form my flat I think I'd only been there a year so 2006 would fit in with the time scale.
And yes, I agree. To see Noctilucent clouds is a spectacular sight and very other worldly.
