Fantastically Colorful Clouds Spotted in Arctic Stratosphere

Space Weather News for Dec. 22, 2014

STRATOSPHERIC CLOUDS: Around the Arctic Circle, sky watchers are
seeing fantastic colors--but it's not the aurora borealis. A rare
outbreak of polar stratospheric clouds is underway over our planet's
north polar region. These clouds, which are associated with the
formation of ozone holes, float much higher than ordinary clouds and
produce unforgettable colors during the hours around sunset. Visit for pictures and updates.
