"Last night, I saw the noctilucent cloud display of a life time," reports veteran observer Martin McKenna of Northern Ireland. |
"It looked like the end of the world! The shadow-casting structures which illuminated the countryside were absolutely breathtaking."
Here is one of the "hundred or so" pictures he took:
"Large loops, whirls and pillars with knots could be seen moving rapidly in real time; there were astounding silver and blue colours mixed with subtle yellow, gold and green. It was a sight that left me awestruck. This is the best NLC season I have ever experienced!"
These intense displays could be related to sunspots--or lack thereof.
For reasons no one fully understands, NLCs tend to be most active during years of solar minimum. 2009 is such a year. The sun is in the pits of the deepest solar minimum in nearly a century, and many researchers expect a banner season for these mysterious clouds.

GREAT RED SPOT RIVAL: |
Astronomers are monitoring a new red spot forming in Jupiter's northern hemisphere--a brick-red storm nearly as large as the Great Red Spot itself.
"I have been monitoring the new spot since mid-April," says Go. "At first it was relatively small. In late May it began to grow rapidly, and just last week John Rogers of the British Astronomical Association issued an alert for everyone to observe it."
Time for a spiritual realignment
So what's the best way to handle Jupiter in retrograde? Look to see if your beliefs reflect your values. Are they truly a part of who you are, or are you blindly following the beliefs of someone else?
This huge planet has 63 moons (at last count), the most of any of the planets.
The four largest moons are Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto. These four moons are among the very first things Galileo saw with his small telescope (in 1610).
For its size, Jupiter spins amazingly fast, rotating once every 9.8 hours. It takes Jupiter 11.86 Earth years to orbit the sun.
Scientists believe that life as we know it could not exist there.
The temperature is very cold, and the surface of this gigantic planet is an ocean of liquid hydrogen that could be as much as 10,000 miles deep. If Jupiter were hollow, more than 1,300 Earths could fit inside it.
