Space Space Shuttle Atlantis Launch June 8th, 2007 - Noctilucent Clouds Photos
Space Shuttle Atlantis rose to the heavens and left behind its mark for over an hour in the skies”. This photo was shot exactly one hour after the launch. The exhaust caused noctilucent clouds to form and leave behind a colorful “Northern Lights” looking sky during sunset. The noctilucent colors are caused by tiny ice crystals and possibly water droplets in the exhaust, which diffract the light of the setting sun.
