First contact... or the start of World War III? Amateur cameraman captures stunning glowing cloud in the skies over Russia

Clouds / Nuvens ☁

Absolutely spectacular shot of lenticular clouds over the Sandwich islands. Also known as altocumulus standing lenticularis, these are stationary, lens-shaped clouds that form at high altitudes. They are included in the middle layer cloud family because the bases of the clouds are stationed between ~ 2,000 - 7,000 meters. These clouds form when moist air is forced to flow up around mountains and large hills. The water is super cooled and condensed from air below the dew point temperature....

Lenticular Clouds - These aerial masterpieces only occur when air strategically flows over a mountain and into bigger, more dense clouds.

a thought occurred to me today as i sat at my window transfixed by the drops of water dancing on the patio.....the rain is mother nature's emotions pouring down on us....i can feel her equal balance of pain and joy in the rain drops as they collide with the earth. <3
