Lenticular Clouds over Cadair Idris

Lenticular Clouds over Cadair Idris

Martin Garnett recently sent us this video. Gavin Pretor-Pinney has advised that the lenticularis formation is embedded within a stratocumulus layer and so is more or less visible at different stages of the video. He also mentioned that it is possible that there are some moments of “asperatus” formations visible.

    That was amazing! I lost count of how many clouds went by as I was watching your video. Being a new member of the C.A.S, it makes me even more determined to point my camera skywards. Thank you.
