Alien clouds poised to strike Seattle

Postby Tavish » Mon Jul 20, 2009 1:30 pm

Mysterious, glowing clouds previously seen almost exclusively in Earth’s polar regions have appeared in the skies over the United States and Europe over the past several days.

Photographers and other sky watchers in Omaha, Paris, Seattle, and other locations have run outside to capture images of what scientists call noctilucent (”night shining”) clouds.

These aliens are hostile and here to destroy us all, I'm almost positive this time.

It's Global Warming, and it's terribly frightening because the ideal temperature for this planet is within a few degrees either side of what we've observed for the last 200-ish years, and ANY variation from that "norm" will kill us all.

If there are hills near you, run for them now.

Are you sure this isn't just some viral marketing campaign for the next J.J. Abrams movie? :-D

I see a trend here: the aliens are heading South. Alien Aurora Borealis poised to strike Oregon.

I saw the Aurora Borealis in California once.

Fascinating, I know.

Of course. But it's sore most mornings, so hard to tell if there was some correlation.
