Oh, What A Cloud!!!!

I went out after supper last night and weeded in one of my gardens.

Luckily, I quit at the right time to see this unusual cloud formation in the east.

I definitely have never seen anything like it. I even watched two shows last night on the weather channel, with parts about clouds.

None looked like this one.

The light gradually changed on it.

It started changing at the bottom first.

I zoomed in and out almost constantly.

The whole experience probably only lasted ten minutes or so.

It’s called a strato cumulus undulatus cloud.

Pictures of them in my two weather books show them many close-together paralleling columns. None had a only single one like this.

I will definitely cloud watch more now!
