I saw the same thing last Monday night here in the Netherlands. It was between the hours of 10 pm to midnight (could've been longer, but that's when
I went to bed). I have never seen anything like it. At first I assumed they were the northern lights, which would have been spectacular since I've
always wanted to see them and they are very rare here (conditions have to be absolutely perfect and even then you'd only see them low on the horizon
in the extreme north).
Some else pointed out to me that the lights couldn't be Auroras. For one, it was cloudly, completely overcast and second, they were everywhere, in
the north, east, directly overhead and even over the horizon in the south. This also rules out noctilucent clouds (clouds lit from beneath by the
sun). It kinda looked like greenhouses were lighting up the underside of the clouds, but there are none in my vicinity. I settled on the moonlight
showing through thinner patches of cloud. But now that I'm thinking about it that doesn't really explain why the streaks of light on the north AND
south horzion were equally bright. It's not even full moon this week.
