Noctilucent clouds are intensifying

On May 17th, NASA's AIM spacecraft detected the first noctilucent clouds (NLCs) of summer. Those first electric-blue smudges were barely visible. Since then, however, the clouds have rapidly intensified. Recent images from orbit show a growing bank of NLCs pinwheeling just inside the Arctic Circle:

NLCs are Earth's highest clouds. Seeded by meteoroids, they float at the edge of space more than 80 km above the ground. The clouds form when summertime wisps of water vapor rise up to the mesosphere, allowing water to crystallize around specks of meteor smoke. Last summer, they spread as far south as Los Angeles and Las Vegas, setting records for low-latitude sightings.

Robert's excellent photos managed to capture the white 'chin' and silvery appearance to the primaries
On Monday 25 May I decided to go for a walk along the coastal path at Scapa Beach, Mainland Orkney, to look for some Yellow Wagtails and keep an eye on the sea for any cetaceans. I had no luck with the wagtails but, as I was heading back from my walk, I scanned the sea with my binoculars before spotting something different in the sky.

A white beak was the first thing I noticed as being unusual - it was almost eagle-like - but I knew it wasn't bird of prey and more likely a skua of some description, so I decided to get some photos. The bird had first appeared at approximately 7.30 am along the east coast of Scapa Flow just below Gaitnip Farm and headed over Scapa Bay, to the west coast of the flow, and up over Lingro Farm where it gained height, circling above the fields in an almost Common Buzzard-like manner.

As I was watching it I started thinking that it was something different to normal, as it had an unusual wingbeat and flying style (almost reminscent of an owl!) and a white beak and black body with long wings. What was this? The bird then started to head east again back over Scapa Bay, before flying up over the hill towards the airport. That was the last I saw of it.

It's as if governments around the planet know that the energetic changes sweeping our solar system and the spiral arm of our galaxy will usher in changes that will naturally reset humanity. This explains the unbelievably reckless money printing and ripping apart of the global economy unchecked. The Hollywood-esque headlines need to become more and more distracting to keep the populace unaware until they are not.

A team of ocean researchers stumbled across what appeared to be some type of 'underwater tornado' (pictured) while conducting a study near Moore Reef, off the coast of Cairns
A team of researchers conducting a study near an Australian reef stumbled across an amazing sight when their cameras picked up an 'underwater tornado'.

Schmidt Ocean Institute researchers were performing a remote expedition on Moore Reef, off the coast of Cairns in Queensland, when they made the discovery on May 22.

'That's amazing. It's like it's created an underwater tornado, I've never seen that before,' one of the researchers is heard saying.

Australian marine geologist Dr Robin Beaman watched the live feed and explained how unusual the sighting was.

'There is such a thing called benthic storms, this is kind of at a broader level, this is like a benthic tornado,' the researcher said.

'It is actually leaving a trail on the sea floor, that was so strange.'
