‘Road trip’: as its name suggests, it is the perfect gateway to experiencing nature and landscapes while roaming hundreds of miles with your car or your flowered-van, depending on how much of a 70’s-nostalgic you are! As our airborne NLC research campaign drew to an en...

As a chapter of my life ends, my professional career took a very unexpected turn. Hint: it has to do with science, astronomy, noctilucent clouds, and photography...No guesses yet? Here is the answer.

The Odsherred area, situated in Denmark, is a little peninsula-like province that is 357 km2 wide and contains roughly 33.000 year-round inhabitants. However its population more than doubles between winter and summer! Copenhageners, Swedish people, Germans and even Fre...

As I wrote my article yesterday, I was thinking June 11th was going to be the last night for noctilucent clouds in at least a week, and I had very little hope for June 12th. I actually thought of going to bed early las night, because stratus clouds were starting to sho...
