    Cool New Cloud Formations To Be Named

    These look cool. Great picture.

    More about these clouds;

    The Royal Meteorological Society is now gathering detailed information for the days and locations where the asperatus clouds have been seen in an attempt to understand exactly what is causing them.

    Officials will then apply to the UN's World Meteorological Organisation in Geneva to have the new cloud type considered for addition into the International Cloud Atlas, the system used by meteorologists across the globe.

    We should name them after Stephen Colbert, of course!

    Those are fascinating. How does a new cloud formation come to be?

    Way cool! If I had looked up and saw those above my house, I probably would have been a little freaked out.

    Wow, they're a little scary looking. Wonder if we've had them form in the U.S. It will be interesting to learn more about the clouds and the massive amount of heat that was reported they need to form along with moisture.

    They do look ominous!

    I'd run for cover if I saw them above the house!

    If the pictures had been on a different website, I would of thought they were photoshopped. I would of freaked out too if they were over my house.

    Remembering cloud names was always one of my least favorite things in school. I don't know why, but I could never remember which ones were what. Those poor kids with another cloud name to remember. Haha. These are cool, though!

    I'd love to see these from an airplane. I wonder if they look different from the rest from up there.

    I can imagine the whole town screaming (collectively, of course) "Armageddon!!"



    And these aren't the same ones, but I've never seen them before and they're still as eerie! (We have boring skies over Missouri, I guess!)
