NLC Project (Noctilucent Clouds)


thanks to Alberta's Rapid Access Cloud from Cybera, hello mesopause!

The project goal: to develop some NLC planning and viewing tools, and take first steps to modelling these beautiful clouds at the edge of space. Ideas welcome!
Timetable for viewing: NLC and solar altitudes
