    Default Astronomers confirm Earth has two hidden 'dust bunnies' floating around it



    A new study may finally confirm the reality of dust clouds that have circled the Earth, after scientists have had heated debates over their existence for more than 50 years. The clouds were first spotted by Polish astronomer Kazimierz Kordylewski in 1961, and I read on a different article that they are approximately the same distance from Earth as our Moon. You can read more about this here at:

    I hope that all of you enjoy this article, and the very best of regards.
