Return of Storks and NLCs

December 12, 2012
This image was taken on June 26, 2011 in Szubin, Poland of a nesting stork against a backdrop of electric blue clouds. Yearly noctilucent clouds (NLC) arrival is also the time of birth of young storks. Thousands of storks (Ciconia ciconia) arrive in Polish each spring. Credit: NASA/Marek Nikodem
