Noctilucent Clouds


Noctilucent clouds over northern Canada. This images was taken from an 747 flying from Seattle to London over the northern part of Canada. Noctilucent clouds are clouds that are much, much (85km!!!) higher than ordinary clouds and are only visible for a short time around summer solstice.

They are lighted by the sun which is below the horizon to the north.
