First Night-Shining Clouds of 2015 Arctic Season

NASAs Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere, or AIM, spacecraft has spotted a luminous patch of electric-blue drifting across the Arctic Circle. The sighting marks the beginning of the 2015 season for noctilucent clouds (NLCs).
The first clouds appeared on May 19, 2015, a bit earlier than researchers expected.
