Noctilucent Clouds (NLCs) turn on every year in late spring, reaching almost full intensity over a period of no more than 5 to 10 days, and the bulb is glowing. These electric-blue ice clouds hang 53 miles (85 km) above Earth’s surface, at the edge of space itself, circling the north and South Pole regions. NLCs over Canada on June 13, 2012.

An unidentified 60 meters in diameter object was fund by a Swedish diving team, sitting at the bottom of the Baltic Sea. They noted that a 985-foot flattened out ‘runway’ leading up to the object.
Update June, 28: The divers exploring the ‘UFO-shaped’ object say their equipment stops working when they approach within 200m.
Professional diver Stefan Hogerborn said: “Anything electric out there – and the satellite phone as well – stopped working when we were above the object. And then we got away about 200 meters and it turned on again, and when we got back over the object it didn’t work.”
