+ - First Image of "Noctilucent" Clouds from S

Submitted by krygny
krygny (473134) writes "NASA has released the first image of night-shining, or noctilucent, clouds that appear in the atmosphere near the poles during the summer months in each hemisphere. "The first observations of these "night-shining" clouds by a satellite named "AIM" which means Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere, occurred above 70 degrees north latitude on May 25. People on the ground began seeing the clouds on June 6 over Northern Europe. AIM is the first satellite mission dedicated to the study of these unusual clouds." ... "Very little is known about how these clouds form over the poles, why they are being seen more frequently and at lower latitudes than ever before, or why they have been growing brighter.""
