Antarctica

Caption: Nacreous Clouds over Hut Point Nacreous means "pearlescent"or mother of pearl like.. but these clouds are really not true clouds, even though they are classified as such. They do not form as a true cloud does. During the spring and fall in Antarctica, the chemicals that are depleting the ozone, get cold enough to "stick" to each other and form these clouds. In other words, they are formed by chemical bonds..
