  • Noctilucent Clouds

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Surprise high rise in the skies.

    They're called "noctilucent clouds". Strange clouds at the edge of space, not where "normal" clouds are.

    Here's the NASA article: http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2008/25aug_nlc.htm

    And another great photo of them:

    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence!
