Strange Looking Clouds

Hello! I was in my room and dad asked me to check the weather on the computer. I had dozed off watching Murdoch Mysteries and didn’t get to see the end of the episode and another one had started. I got on The Weather Channel and looked at the weather in motion and saw the clouds heading southeast and was clear in the northwest. The clouds had just passed over us. In fact we were right on the edge through the whole deal and I could barely hear the thunder as it had approached earlier. Then, at some point, I had dozed off.

I took this first photo looking directly above the back porch.

I thought how weird the clods looked, almost like they weren’t even real.

They looked almost like they were smooth balls of cotton, not fluffy at all, just stuck under a blue ceiling and about ready to fall off. I took the last two photos on the back porch looking slightly southeast.

I took this photo looking toward the north.

This one was taken looking toward the southwest.

Then I went to the front porch and took this photo looking toward the south… The major part of this system.

Then I took this photo looking over the top of the house. I’ve never seen anything like it… They look kind of out of focus. I was wondering when an alien space ship was going to peek out.


What do you think? Have you seen any strange clouds lately?

    Those are called mammatus clouds. Not rare or dangerous. They are very interesting. Nice pictures.

    They’re called Mammatus clouds, and Wikipedia has a very interesting article about them.


  3. All we have had is clouds and rain for quite a while, but none as interesting as these. 🙂
