I agree with Gregory, Ramona, that mamma can develop isolated in all kind of situations and not necessary underneath an anvil of a leaving cumulonimbus. Here is one of my examples. And my last one is mamma that develop in the streaks of a fallstreak hole. Very peculiar.

This is an interesting question you put forward Ramona. The images are clear and I can see what happens. What I know (you can find it in Wikipedia) is that super cooled droplets in the altocumulus layer need ice nuclei to crystallize to start the process of the formation of a fallstreak hole. Usually it […]
I was watching some clouds in the morning sky yesterday and saw something that puzzled me. Along a low mountain range some cumulus clouds were reaching up to the layer of clouds above them – just starting to touch them. As I watched (and took lots of photos, LOL) it appeared as if they caused […]

Ah, Michael, I clearly see what you mean! Thank you for the excellent re-cropping suggestion. And Hans, I think you may also be right about that fallstreak hole—a bird-created portal to who-knows-where. I only hope your Sticky cloud wasn’t waiting on the other side! It has a seductively soft appeal. If you’ve ever sneezed into a […]

Thanks Keelin, I love your latest composition. It surely leads the eye into the Great Blue Beyond. Marvelous. The bird that dropped through the layer of clouds seems to have caused a small fallstreak hole, don’t you think? Sticky

Thanks Hans, I appreciate the time you’ve taken to explain all this. Do you mind if I share this on a Facebook page called Cloud Identification Worldwide? It’s a public group with 126 members.

This is an interesting one Jiji and a great image. It is a tempting one for sure and thanks for sharing it here. There can’t be any glory for that phenomenon the sun must be behind the observer, while the sun seems to be in front behind the mountain. In my opinion it isn’t a […]
