On the morning of July 1, 1990, an intense display of noctilucent clouds as seen from Namao, Alberta, completely disappeared in 30 min. Observations of the clouds from Slave Lake, Alberta, indicate that the display lasted only slightly longer from that site. The noctilucent clouds' rapid degeneration may have been due to induced heating of their formation zone, perhaps by a coincident aurora.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
