THROUGH THE RAPIDS OF SILVER CLOUDS

It was a normal day and I went for a normal sunset. This time just behind Rudolf´s stone. I´ve been to this place once, in the winter. Who could have guessed that the everyday evening, when the sun was crawling behind the cloud, would become such an extraordinary experience. I saw them for the first time in my life. Noctilucent clouds. Ice crystals formed by freezing water on cores of volcanic or meteoritic dust in the highest layers of the atmosphere (in the so-called mesosphere, 85 km above the ground). I noticed them when I put back the camera in my backpack. Fine silver ripples, which were completely different from the ones that we are used to, from high clouds. I immediately returned the camera to the tripod and waited. This celestial theater lasted until almost midnight. All you had to do was lean on a rock and watch.
