Amazingly white clouds even though it’s dark? It could be the effect of sunlight on the upper atmosphere illuminating the clouds (up 50k in altitude) when the surface of the earth is in darkness. These noctilucent clouds can be truly spectacular!
And today I’m tying in my Natural Phenomena theme for the A to Z Challenge with this month’s prompt from Bruce Gargoyle’s Fiction in 50 challenge…
The Trouble with Clouds
The mother ship checked the sensors as the probe penetrated the layers of Jupiter’s atmosphere: carbon dioxide, hydrochloroethane, hydrochloric acid, sulphuric acid.
The readings garbled.
The signal broke up.
When would they find a coating that didn’t dissolve in the clouds? They had to invent it before gravity took over.
Come back next month to see the result of the next prompt for Fiction in 50 Words. I post on the third Wednesday of the month to link the following Monday with participants worldwide. Do join in!
