Clouds of Madness: Not So Paranoid Intuition

(a hat tip to The Daily Grail for the link to the noctilucent clouds item.)

It's "noctilucent" cloud season. I'd never heard of noctilucent clouds until I saw this item, but realized that, from the descriptions and images, I've seen these cloud formations, including during the day, which doesn't fit the cloud profile, according to this article. What, exactly, are these clouds? According to the following article they were "discovered" in the late 1800s after the eruption of Krakatoa.

The clouds remain a mystery as to why they're where they are. Given the correlation between volcanic debris, pollution, and the gunk that's up there due to our chemtrail/contrail spraying, my intuition wasn't so paranoid after all; these formations do seem share some sort of relationship with chemtrails as well as pollution:
Noctilucent clouds are an unsolved puzzle. They float 83 km above Earth's surface at the edge of space itself. People first noticed NLCs in the late 19th century. In those days you had to travel to high northern latitudes to see them.

In recent years, however, the clouds have been sighted in the United States as far south as Oregon, Washington and even Colorado. Climate change, space dust, and rocket launches have all been cited as possible explanations for the phenomenon. (italics mine.)

My first thought, after seeing the photos and reading about the clouds, was that they were chemtrail related. But no mention of chemtrails. The images come in from all over the world; and many look like the noctilucent clouds, some look more chemtrail "that's no cloud!" kind of thing, as opposed to a natural, "normal" cloud, in this case, the noctilucent cloud.

It's always a risk talking about chemtrails, because, like UFOs, Marian apparitions or other religious phenomena, and so on, there is an either/or perspective. You're either a "believer" and interpret these things literally, or an uber skeptoid and dismiss it all without a thought.

My taking the chemtrail subject seriously doesn't mean I think "they" are spraying us with Dr. Evil mutating mind altering body decaying government spook cooties, (but I wouldn't put it past them) nor do I think they're aliens from space cloaking themselves from us. They're not "contrails" either; please. Give it a rest. "Increased air traffic" indeed.

The problem with this subject is that it's still considered kook fodder, even among UFO and many esoteric researchers. This is surprising, since many unidentified weird things are going on in terms of chemtrail activity; spheres, orbs, little drone like monitoring objects, . . . these have been caught on film. So why the denial? Like UFOs, we know they are, we don't know yet what they are.

Here are some images I took today of clouds that look similar to the noctilucent clouds, but these were taken around 2:00 p.m. There has been a lot of chemtrail acitiviy in the area past few days, along with the above mentioned drone/spheres and other sky strangeness.

Then there are the following "new" clouds as discussed in Meteorologists campaign to classify unique 'Asperatus' clouds seen across the world:
Whipped into fantastical shapes, these clouds hang over the darkening landscape like the harbingers of a mighty storm.

But despite their stunning and frequent appearances, the formations have yet to be officially recognised with a name.

They have been seen all over Britain in different forms - from Snowdonia to the Scottish Highlands - and in other parts of the world such as New Zealand, but usually break up without producing a storm.

Some scientists at the Royal Meteorological Soceity want this cloud variety to be given a new official name: "Asperatus," which is Latin for "rough."

Other sky news concerns hurricanes. Hurricane season is here, and so far, things are normal. Predictions made by those who know say hurricane season should be average, with about 11 hurricanes. But look out for "Strange day-before lightning" which is a signal that hurricanes are to come:
Forecasters have radar and other instruments to help them track the path and strength of storms, but hurricane intensity can ramp up suddenly and unpredictably, as Hurricane Charlie did before striking the southwest coast of Florida in 2004.

But an April study in Nature Geoscience found that the peak winds of a hurricane are preceded by an increase in lightning activity by about one day. Because lightning activity is easily monitored around the world, it could prove a useful tool in hurricane predictions.

As I was writing this, the wind started up and thunder started; trees are waving in the humid air and the thudner is going strong. So it looks like it's time to shut down the computers for now. . .
