If you get a view like this you are a very lucky cloudwatcher. The noctilucent cloud is a summer event, and it’s one I have never seen. It’s not well known, and as there is an increase in their occurrence, research is being done into the conditions that produce them.

The English researchers who produced this beautiful series of spectacular shots for us has a profession I really envy. This seems like a good way to spend your evenings.

It’s reassuring to know that all the effects of global warming aren’t horrible.

What is on your mind tonight?
