Now is a perfect time to see the ’electric’ clouds

6:43 AM by Saša Tošić
This week has seen an increase in the number of reports about strange glowing clouds shimmering in the night sky. This phenomenon is called ’electric-blue clouds.’ They’re formed at the edge between the atmosphere and space, and they consist of the smallest ice crystals. Observers from the Northern Hemisphere can enjoy this amazing view from June until the end of August, and those from the Southern Hemisphere can watch it during the winter. To see this hypnotic phenomenon, look in a northwest direction an hour after sunset. If you want to see the electric-blue clouds in the morning, look at the northeast part of the sky about an hour before sunrise.
