The Land Under Silver Clouds

One of the most beautiful natural phenomena are misterious noctilucent clouds. These night clouds appear only few times in the summer at very high altitude - about 80 km! Due to this they are illuminated by direct solar rays and seem to a ground observer emitting light themselves. Belarus is situated at ideal latitudes to observe this phenomenon and can be named The Land Under silver Clouds. In this short film all observations of noctilucent clouds in the summer 2013 are shown.

This video was made by Victor Malyschits, a Belarusian astrophotographer.
