Stratocumulus over the Caspian Sea

NASA’s Earth Observatory recently featured a peculiar occurrence of stratocumulus clouds over the Caspian Sea. 

Photographed using NASA’s MODIS satellite instrument, the cloud appears to have been a lover of the open seas.  Having appeared over the Caspian Sea, it drifted towards the coast of Makhachkala, Russia, where it dissipated upon reaching land.
