And then the sky went 'pop'

That was unexpected. I took off at 6:30pm, released straight into lift under a cloud street and then spent the next hour above 3,000 ft eventually landing at 7:45pm!

The conditions were fascinating. The wind formed short streets of very high cloud. And you had to play leapfrog - sticking with the current street until the next street to the east developed. Then you could dash East through the sink and meet the next street all within the 4,000 feet QFE airspace.

As the sky cleared, and lift died, the moon came up just above my wing!

And a view down the Hambledon valley in the evening light.
