Deceiving clouds

I was sent this photo from a mobile phone yesterday - hence the not completely wonderful quality!

A little cloud-watching is something I have a lot of time for. I plucked a cloud book from my shelf (everyone should have a cloud book! I have two . . . ) and discovered that my vague hunch was right, and this cloud is called Altocumulus Lenticularis. Okay, I only got the lenticular bit from memory. Unsurprisingly, it's often mistaken for being a UFO.


  1. It's indepedance day. They are coming. There's no escape!

  2. I know. It's a pain, isn't it. Oh well . . . ;-)


Thanks so much for leaving a comment here - I always love to read them and I do my best to reply to them all, either here or by email.
