Mammatus Clouds

Make bouncy balls out of borax and corn starch.

Carina nebula. A portion of the Keyhole (the dark mass on the bottom), and on the top left, one of many dense molecular clouds of gas and dust being simultaneously compressed by the hot gases surrounding them, and ionized by the intense ultraviolet radiation from nearby stars. Within a few million years, most of the gases in the molecular cloud will be scattered and mixed with its surroundings. But stars now forming in its interior will gleam brightly, once their dusty shroud is removed.

Top 10 Strangest Things in the Universe by Dave Mosher. #Astronomy #Universe science.discovery...

Sometimes likened to UFOs, lenticular clouds are usually created by gravity waves. Chuang evokes loose shock absorbers to describe what gravity waves are. A mountain range can form a series of long wave clouds, but if the speed bump is more isolated, like a single mountain, the result can be oval-shaped clouds that look like UFOs. Sometimes multiple ovals form that look like a stack of saucers.

In this series (see other pics) astronomers selected the top 10 most amazing pictures taken by the Hubble space telescope in the last 16 years. "...they illustrate that our universe is not only deeply strange, but also almost impossibly beautiful." Michael Hanlon/AH (Nov 25th, 2006) . After correcting an initial problem with the lens, when the Hubble Space Telescope was first launched in 1990, the floating astro-observatory began to relay back to Earth, incredible snapshots of the "fina...

The Morning Glory cloud is a rare meteorological phenomenon occasionally observed in different locations around the world. The southern part of Northern Australia's Gulf of Carpentaria is the only known location where it can be predicted and observed on a more or less regular basis. The settlement of Burketown attracts glider pilots intent on riding this phenomenon (up to 620 miles long, 0.6 t-1.2 miles high, often only 330-660 ft above the ground, moves at speeds up to 37mph
