Reply To: Colour Thread Vol IV

Good question Michael. First of all I like these undulating lines of asperitas, which I still think it is. Here under a picture of a similar situation with a wider view I captured recently on a day the sky was filled with asperitas from which...

This was a Aperitas event so I’m going with Asperitas Undulatus but it seems way to well organized  for Asperitas..?? Arizona Color#100  

Reply To: Colour Thread Vol IV

Keelin, Blooming Blue might be difficult to classify from a cloud point of view but without naming the cloud it has to be classified as beautiful with its very simple but elegant structure. The fine maze of undulatus duplicatus and the asperitas behind it (right?)...

Cool  blue of overcast asperitas and Arizona Blue to fight the fire of Sunburn Asperitas. Beauty and destructiveness are close. I remember last year the fires were also on the news over here. It must be terrifying. I hope the fires will be under control...

Hans, I love the soft swooshiness of your screen cleaners a few posts up. Those clouds were really on the move — and quite a contrast to your Gordian Knot! The serenity in the images that followed (from both you and Michael) looked to me...

Reply To: Nebraska 6.13.18 Widespread Formation with Asperitas

Hi George, thank you for your comments! The weather data for that day and the following is below in the chart. No rain at the time, and the wind changed direction. The next day was significantly warmer. The clouds quickly approached and went overhead and...

Love your AZ B&W#126, Michael! The funny thing is, while Hans sees an appetizing, flowery pattern, somehow I see a fantastic portrait of the goat itself. Is it time to visit the eye doctor (or one of a different vocation)? That question aside, these Asperitas...

Yes Michael, this is the characteristic wavelike structure I like so much of asperitas. On this side of the pond  

Reply To: HALOS AND RAINBOWS VOLUME II

In the Nebraska Asperitas thread I read about the excitement of seeing a surprise in the sky. I had that experience two days ago seeing my first Circumhorizontal arc. It is a rare phenomenon over here for it is only two month in the year for...

Reply To: Black & White Thread Volume X

I love the flowering pattern of B&W#126 Michael. Beware that it won’t be eaten by some bypassing goat that has developed the habit of hopping from one side of the pond to the other. I saw your thin Asperitas on the color thread. From this...

Reply To: Nebraska 6.13.18 Widespread Formation with Asperitas

Thanks for sharing these fantastic pictures Laura. They show amazing and impressing structures in the sky. This is asperitas on a different scale than I  can observe sometimes in the Netherlands. No tornadoes over here to make it that spectacular (better not I should say)...

Nebraska 6.13.18 Widespread Formation with Asperitas

  On June 13, Nebraska, USA saw an interesting, widespread cloud event which included asperitas formations. The day before there were several small (EF-0) tornadoes (http://www.1011now.com/content/news/Weather-service-confirms-5-Nebraska-tornadoes-1-in-Iowa-485368291.html). My view was not as dramatic as some, but here are a few unedited photos for anyone interested. As...

Yes, your True Grit has certainly a sand painting feel Keelin. Smooth Texture

Daniel, I see it’s not only an eagle in flight you’ve managed to capture, but a couple of lovely images posted to the Sunset thread as well. Hope we see more from you! And Hans, well there’s no fooling your discerning eye. Love the calm gaze...

And here’s another winged creature. Caught this one taking a little snooze, perhaps dreaming of riding the rollercoaster waves of Asperitas. Sleeping Faerie

You’re so right, Hans, the shapes in your Asperitas captures are wonderfully strange. Even so, or perhaps because so, the image above would make a lovely lead in to a tale about dolphins gliding through far northern seas. Arctic Splash    

Reply To: Clouds-that-look-like-things

It’s been quite awhile since I’ve seen any Asperitas here and look forward to more of your images, Hans. They do create the most amazing formations. As for freedom on the wing, it appears to come in many sizes.

Thank you Keelin. Nice Ripple. Some days ago I could capture some very strange asperitas forms. I went out the door to do some shopping and after looking up I went immediately back in to catch my camera. Asperitas passing by! Lots of different ripples....

Reply To: Clouds-that-look-like-things

It is funny what you wrote about Aftermath of the Stones, Keelin. I had the same experience having to remove the dust of  my memories, triggered by your I Am Waiting For Someone To Come Out Of Somewhere. Wow, what a view Head Above The...

Reply To: Asperitas now mainstream

Ha! Well spotted, Geoff. Asperitas, the cloud type first identified by members of the Cloud Appreciation Society, finally becomes ‘general knowledge’. thanks for sharing this.

Asperitas now mainstream

Question 9 in The Guardian magazine general knowledge quiz yesterday: What links volutus, asperitas, murus, homogenitus, flumen (and seven others)?
