Rocket experiment creates eerie cloud


www.msnbc.msn.com

An eerie cloud that glowed briefly in the night sky Saturday was no UFO. It was created by humans — more specifically, a NASA rocket built to make clouds that shine at night.

The rocket launched as part of an experiment to create artificial noctilucent — or night-shining — clouds, the highest clouds on Earth. They naturally appear around 50 miles (80 kilometers) above Earth's high latitudes and are also known as polar mesospheric clouds.

;The experiment created a human-made noctilucent cloud using the fourth stage of a NASA Black Brant XII suborbital sounding rocket that spewed exhaust particles 173 miles (278 kilometers) above Earth. Ground-based radar and camera stations recorded the resulting cloud's formation and illumination. The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory and Department of Defense's Space Test Program oversaw the launch, which it called the Charged Aerosol Release Experiment.

NASA has observed naturally occurring night-shining clouds using its AIM satellite. The Naval Research Laboratory and Space Test Program used a satellite called STPSat-1 to observe Saturday night's artificial cloud.

So what about the clouds over Budapest, Hungary on June 15, 2007?

Excellent question. And why are taxpayer dollars being wasted on experiments in cloud shining?

I have grown to be sceptical, and I cant help my self, things dont make sense a whole lot of the time.

Yes, why waste money on this ? It say noctilucent clouds accure naturally at 50 miles up.

How long have the NoctiClouds been around ? Weren't these some 'new clouds discovered' in the summer time ?

Well, when those photons start to bounce of the sun, I'm sure it is just Nasa doing more new experiments..
