I found this .. interesting .. for many reasons, very intriguing..
A new NASA satellite has recorded the first detailed images from space of a mysterious type of cloud called "night-shining" or
NASA at first played these clouds off as nothing, however they then decided to investigate, ordering a satellite to take several pictures (released
anyways) of these "glowing clouds"..
Satellite-image composite over northern Europe and North America, taken June 11.
No one can say what it is, specialist of been pouring over data to find what is causing this never before seen phenomena. The clouds at first where
thought to be a product of the Northern Lights however they are actual clouds, which is not what makes the North Lights possible.. however some
theories can tie the two together by stating this has to do with our electro magnetic field..
The clouds form in the upper layers of the atmosphere, some 50 miles above Earths surface within the Mesosphere. One thing most scientist are
currently agreeing on, is that this could very well be related to climate change, that something big is happening to our planet and we don't know
A weakening or failing Magnetic Field, could be to blame, evidence with animals disappearing, getting lost such as tropical fish in cold waters,
whales off their migration paths and beaching themselves, bird migration interruptions and so forth.. now we have mysterious glowing clouds.
Scientist do not know the implications of the clouds, how they form or why they formed. Sounds like we are a little confused on the topic in regards
to our own climate and world.
