WHO NEEDS PHOTOSHOP WHEN MOTHER NATURE CAN BE THIS CREATIVE? These 15 Clouds Really Exist in Nature!
Posted on Feb 18, 2016
These clouds aren't a precursor to alien invasion – they're a completely natural occurrence, believe it or not!
1. Fallstreak Hole
Nope, the sky isn’t caving in – some of the clouds’ water droplets freeze into ice crystals and fall below the clouds. Funny thing is that Fallstreak Hole can spread up to dozens of miles!
2. Anvil Clouds
Though you’d be mistaken thinking that this is a nuclear blast, you aren’t that far from the truth; anvil clouds are the upper part of thunderstorms. They produce lightening and thunders that can be heard miles away!
3. Cirrus Kelvin-Helmholtz Clouds
These beautiful clouds aren’t linked to any weather condition, but you’ll have a hard time noticing them – they last only a few minutes! They’re usually 16,500 feet (5 kilometers) up in the sky!
4. Lenticular Clouds
Although they look like marshmallows, lenticular clouds are formed when a current of moist air is condensed while travelling upwards (travelling over a mountain). They are known to stay in the same position for days.
