Strange light bursts detected in the atmosphere of the Earth

Earth PlanetA Russian satellite has taken mysterious ‘light explosions’ in the upper atmosphere of our planet. The unusual phenomenon was picked up by the satellite Lomonosov (named after Russian scientist Mikhailo Lomonosov), which monitors the atmosphere for cosmic rays of high energy.

What makes these light bursts particularly unusual is the fact that, unlike most luminous flashes in the midst of weather events, they appear to occur where the sky is completely clear.

“With the help of the telescope, we have obtained even more important results than we expected,” said Mikhail Panasyuk, director of the Research Institute of Nuclear Physics at Moscow State University.

“It looks like we’ve encountered new physical phenomena. We don’t know their physical nature yet. For example, during the flight of Lomonosov at an altitude of several dozen kilometres, we’ve recorded a very powerful” explosion “of light several times.”

“But everything was clear underneath it, no storms, no clouds.”

Now scientists work to determine exactly what these peculiar light bursts could be.
