Dommage qu'il s'éloignait celui ci, ça avait l'air marrant dessous... mais le pola sauve bien les photos avec ces ciels bleus :p

Simple curiosité : tu estimes sa hauteur à combien de kilomètres ?
Reply
:iconflorentcourty:
FlorentCourty Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2010
Etant donné qu'il s'est écrasé à la tropopause très peu après, il devait être à sa hauteur, un peu plus d'une dizaine de kilomètres. ça varie beaucoup selon les situations, dans les dépressions elle peut devenir très basse (et les CB en hiver qui circulent dans les ciels de traine ressemblent à des yaourts ducoup) et à l'inverse plus haute dans les anticyclones. Et en moyenne elle est plus haute en été qu'en hiver. =)
