Be Amazed at these 10 strangest cloud formations! Kelvin-Helmholtz Wave Clouds – Named after the physicists Lord Kelvin and Hermann von Helmholtz, this wave-like cloud formation is truly awe-inspiring. Mackerel Sky – Rarely will you see clouds that are formed and arranged as neatly as this cloud formation. Fallstreak Holes – Despite its daunting appearance, fallstreak holes aren’t something you should fear. Unlike the previous cloud formations, fallstreak holes don’t forebode the arrival of a storm, as they’re not caused by atmospheric instabilities. Cumulonimbus Clouds – If there’s one word to describe these clouds, it’s “massive”. Cumulonimbus clouds are considered the “heavyweights” among the different types of clouds, as their colossal size plainly overshadows other clouds. Asperitas Clouds – Ominous in appearance, asperitas clouds are clouds that greatly resemble the rolling waves of the ocean — even its movements will remind you of the ocean.
Polar Stratospheric Clouds – Seeing this cloud formation may immediately remind you of the Aurora Borealis seen in the magnetic north poles. Shelf Clouds – Yes, cumulonimbus clouds are indeed frightening, but they’re usually formed high up in the atmosphere. Mammatus Clouds – With a shape akin to that of a cow’s udders, the mammatus cloud is a strange and rare cloud formation seen only in a few places around the world. Lenticular Clouds – Here we have yet another cloud formation that’s commonly mistaken for UFOs. Morning Glory Clouds – So far I’ve covered some of the most magnificent cloud formations known to man, but nothing comes close to the splendour of this cloud formation.
