Noctilucent Season, 2010

Posted June 05, 2010 by User 1

Once again, those of us living in the higher latitudes prepare for those glowing, night-shining clouds. Noctilucent clouds are returning for the next few months.

Last year saw one of the greatest displays of NLCs in some time with displays dropping down to Paris on July 14th. These displays tend to be most dramatic near solar minimum and current solar minimum is the deepest since 1913 meaning some great displays may be on the way.

The season runs from now until September so go out and take a look. They are visible an hour or two before sunrise or after sunset.
