Noctilucent Clouds (NLCs)

Post by madjock72 » Thu Apr 21, 2016 11:12 pm

It`s nearly time for this event which happens during the period of May to August/September. I put this in this area as the clouds are in the Mesosphere which is 85km high. Anyhow here is the link to explain what and how they form which is still unclear as the talk i came from tonight and onlt where documented from 1850 era after the Krakatoa event.
