Cloud of the Month for July

July 2013

To Infinity and Beyond

This month’s image, by Doug Short, shows a mix of cloud types over Anchorage, Alaska. The formations here are Stratocumulus, Altocumulus and, over the distant mountains, lenticularis. In fact, you could add another cloud term into the mix: clouds that appear to radiate out from a point on the horizon like this are also known as ‘radiatus’.
