Shuttle Launch Creates Artificial Noctilucent Cloud

My husband and I got up to watch Monday’s 6:20 am shuttle launch in Florida.  I was shocked when the second phase seemed to spray something to create a noctilucent cloud.  It seemed strangely similar to the one deliberately created in the NASA/Navy C.A.R.E. rocket experiment launched from Wallop Island Virginia September 19, 2009,and seen spraying aluminum oxide over my house in Old Greenwich, CT.  Although NASA is not admitting that they conducted another experiment, they have posted an article on why this launch created this type of cloud.

The following photos of the shuttle launch are the best I’ve seen capturing the creation of this cloud:
