Noctilucent Cloud Sightings

Polar Mesospheric Clouds form during each polar region's summer months in the coldest place in the atmo¬sphere -- 50 miles above the Earth's surface. Noctilucent Clouds were first observed in 1885 by an amateur astronomer and have been becoming brighter, more frequent and appear to be moving to lower latitudes in recent years.

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
