FEATURED DATA ARCHIVE
11 June 2007
On June 11, 2007 the cameras
on the AIM satellite returned some of the first data documenting
noctilucent clouds over the Arctic regions of Europe and North
America. This new data reveals the global extent and structure
of these mysterious clouds, to a degree that was previously
unattainable. White and light blue represent noctilucent cloud
structures. Black indicates areas where no data is available.
