July 11, 2007  NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Maryland - "The first observations of these 'night-shining' clouds by the satellite, AIM, which means Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere, occurred above 70 degrees north latitude on May 25, 2007. People on the ground began seeing the clouds on June 6, 2007, over Northern Europe. AIM is the first satellite mission dedicated to the study of these unusual clouds.
