Night clouds. Earth's atmosphere

Night clouds. Earth's atmosphere

Sometimes it is night on earth, but day in heaven. As the earth rotates to eclipse the Sun, its output is shown by the horizon. Therefore, at the exit on earth, the sunlight sometimes illuminates the clouds above.

Under unusual circumstances, we can see a beautiful sunrise like the one in the photo, where the clouds float so high that they can be seen in the dark. The photograph, where we see a set of this type of clouds, shows a colorful landscape visible at night.

Although these clouds seem to be composed of particles of small pieces of ice, we still don't know much about them. Current evidence indicates that at least some of these clouds are the result of the freezing of the Space Shuttle.
