An amazing, rare photograph of high-altitude noctilucent or “night shining” clouds, from the International Space Station.
“Noctilucent Clouds on the North Horizon… Tripod out and Camera rolling as fast as possible. High ISO and short intervals… Excited, I hit the tripod
Noctilucent Clouds (NLC) and Aurora during one night are very rare. Noctilucent Clouds (Polar Mesospheric Clouds) are the world’s highest types of cloud forming on
This image was taken from the ISS as it passed over the Tibetan Plateau, on June 13, 2012, when polar mesospheric clouds were also visible
Sometimes it’s night on the ground but day in the air. As the Earth rotates to eclipse the Sun, sunset rises up from the ground.
Noctilucent, or “night shining” clouds, the electric blue clouds, are showing up at ever more southerly latitudes, and astronomers aren’t sure why, according to NASA.
On the cusp of our atmosphere live a thin group of seasonal beautiful electric blue clouds.
Spectacular glow-in-the-dark Noctilucent clouds, 50 to 85 kilometers above the Earth’s surface, in frozen Antarctica.
These astounding noctilucent or “night-shining” unusual clouds, formed high in the atmosphere above the polar regions of the world, in the late spring and summer.
Polar mesospheric clouds (noctilucent or “night shining” clouds) form between 76 to 85 kilometers (47 to 53 miles) above the Earth’s surface, near the boundary
