MAMMATUS clouds are most often associated with the anvil cloud & severe thunderstorms. They often extend from the base of a cumulonimbus but may also be found under altocumulus, altostratus, stratocumulus, & cirrus clouds as well as volcanic ash clouds^

Altocumulus Clouds

Altocumulus undulatus clouds at Abruzzo national park, Italy. This cloud formation consists of parallel bands of cumulus clouds, occuring when wind shear affects a layer of altocumulus Photograph: Science Photo Library / Rex Feat

The beauty of nature

"Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky."Rabindranath Tagore These clouds are amazing

Mammatus clouds. These odd-shaped clouds are often associated with a storm front, especially one involving a thunderstorm. It’s not completely understood how they form.

Upper Atmospheric Lightning - It is believed to be electrically induced forms of optical fluorescence. The preferred name is a transient luminous event (TLE), because the various types of electrical-discharge phenomena in the upper atmosphere lack several characteristics of the more familiar tropospheric lightning. TLEs include red sprites, sprite halos, blue jets, gigantic jets, and ELVES.

The Chaiten volcano erupts during storms in the middle of the night on May 2008 in Chaiten, Chile. The Chaiten volcano, located some 800 miles south of the capital Santiago, was considered dormant since it had not erupted for hundreds of years.


So crazy this happens! They are called frost flowers, a strange phenomenon where frost grows from imperfections in the surface ice amid extreme sub-zero temperatures nearing or forming spiky structures that have been found to house microorganisms.

Storm Clouds

I know it sound crazy but I would love to go Tornado hunting one day ( on the Bucket List). /So pretty, looking from a distance, love this picture, hey, I'd love to go storm chasing myself EL.

Mammatus Clouds

Mammatus Clouds - if you ever see cloud formations like this find shelter FAST! Mammatus clouds are often formed from Supercells which often produce tornadoes!


This is me loving God's beauty and creation of high altitude cumulonimbus cloud formation. Love watching the clouds roll by.

Unusual Weather Phenomena: Punch Hole Clouds

a rare meteorological phenomenon called a sky punch hole - ice crystals form above the high-altitude cirro-cumulo-stratus clouds, then fall downward punching a hole in the cloud cover

:0!!! *_*

A fire whirl, known to some as the fire tornado. One of the most terrifying sights.Fire tornadoes occur when heat, ash and fire get swept up in a spinning mass of air.Fire forms a tornado-like vortex of flames.
