In October, an astronaut issued a photo of the International Space Station, which looks like a different world, glowing yellow and orange. But this photo, taken from 250 miles above Australia, is just a small with a strange hue due to the atmospheric phenomenon, which is called light gloss.
You can recall from your high school science class that the Earth's atmosphere is a planetary glowing gas that protects us from the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays. As UV rays influence the Earth's lowest atmosphere, they activate the molecule in the air, and this energy is liberated as light.
Although in our atmosphere there is usually a degree of light emitting diode, it is not always visible, and the color bars that we see differ in different layers of the atmosphere. In the ISS photo, the bright light is yellow and orange, but the light spot visible from Earth is usually red and green.
NASA is studying the atmosphere to better understand how our atmosphere works. As the atmosphere is a space between space and Earth, its exploration can help scientists better understand the relationship between the weather on Earth and space. To this end, NASA plans to launch a new satellite, called the Ionspheric Connection Explorer (ICON); The show was originally scheduled for today (November 7th), but was postponed due to bad weather in the rocket. Once launched, it will monitor the Earth's atmosphere from its orbit around 360 miles above the ground.
