Have you ever heard of Notilucent clouds?

Scientist at Nasa are studying them.
They have become more abundant and are see as far South as Colorado. They were once only in places like Antarctica. This may be do to Climate Change.
I remember studying clouds in Earth Science but, we never studied Notilucent clouds.
See link.

Noctilucent Clouds Over Antarctica Noctilucent clouds are like a great "geophysical light bulb." They turn on every year at the end of spring, reaching almost full intensity over a period of no more than 5 to 10 days. As December unfolds, a vast bank of noctilucent clouds is blanketing Antarctica. It started on Nov. 20th as a tiny puff of electric-blue and quickly expanded to overlie nearly the entire continent. "The clouds appeared over the south pole earlier than usual this year," said AIM science team member Cora Randall of the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics in Colorado. (Note the noctilucent clouds shown here were photographed in Scotland on May 30, 2013).

No, I hadn't.
It does sound like they think they're due to climate change.
They're pretty but, I don't think we want to see them as much as we are.
It means the atmosphere is becoming increasingly more polluted, and CO2 isn't the only culprit.

This is a video from one of the articles.
It's a pretty good one.



We'd better start changing our polluting ways.

I don't know that you did anything wrong.
It could have been a glitch.


Here's some pictures showing which code from Youtube to use, and where to paste it on Carbonet.

Sorry it didn't work.
People would've seen it from your links anyway, though.
