      Saw these in the morning in Idaho. Amazing. As a beginner, I’m not sure where to start to identify them.  Maybe Radiatus? Or just a bunch of Cumulus lined up? Thanks !

      Hans, for the record I am getting an error ‘Cant reach this page’ for your link. I tried F5 refresh (Windows 10).

      Yes the link does not work Hygge. A second attempt: February 2018

      In the case it still does not work one has to scroll a bit through the archive of Clouds of the Month (click on the menu item “Gallery” and click on submenu Cloud of The Month, and then scroll and page a bit to find it.

      Steven, nice spotting. The basic type is stratocumulus. Because it’s wavy, you can say it’s stratocumulus undulatus. And the perspective effect makes them look like they radiate for some point away, so radiatus also applies. A mouthful. Also know as “cloud streets”.
