Weird noctilucent clouds over Philly

Anyone else in the Philadelphia area seeing this? There are some strange, vertical clouds in the area that look a lot like aurorae (it's well into darkness here), but they aren't moving. They look like they might be high-altitude noctilucent clouds, but I think it's the wrong time of year for those. What are they? I've never seen anything like them.

Help finding a new place to live?

Conshohocken, PA had a massive fire today at the Riverwalk Millenium Apartment/Condos. Luckily, from what we've seen there were no serious injuries, but the buildings look like they are a complete loss. Friends were supposed to move in to one of the new apartments next week, and are now trying to find a similar living situation to get into by September. One will be working in Philly, the other in Bryn Mawr, they don't really know the area that well, and can't get back to PA until next week. They sort of fell into this lease because of a lucky coincidence, and need some help figuring out where else to look that would be similarly convenient, new and clean. $1500 per month would be the maximum they could afford for a one bedroom. Thanks for any help

What are some Bachelor Party options for Philadelphia on a Friday night? "Adult Entertainment" is probably out (Atlantic City for the next night).

Probably looking for places where the dude ratio is relatively low. Staying in center city.
