The American National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) shared orbital images of clouds formed as the farthest point where the earth’s atmosphere meets the space, qualifying as ‘glowing clouds at night’.

In the comments section of the picture of the ‘glowing clouds at night’ shared by NASA’s Instagram account, institution officials wrote that the image was ‘a postcard from the end of space’.

NASA shared, “These electric-colored clouds can only be seen when the sun is under the horizon when the sun sets,” he said.

Adding that the photo was taken from the International Space Station (UUI) in the south of the Pacific Ocean at a height of 269 miles (almost 433 kilometers), NASA stressed that ‘night-shining clouds’ are the clouds at the top of the earth’s atmosphere.

In the mesosphere of the world, ‘night-shining clouds’, formed at an altitude of 76-85 kilometers, can be seen in northern and southern latitudes, in the range of 50 to 70 degrees, in the deep summer twilight.
