Asperitas is a cloud supplementary feature that can appear in Stratocumulus or Altocumulus layers and is the newest accepted cloud classification. Named from the Latin for ‘roughness’ it was added in March 2017 to the International Cloud Atlas, the official reference on cloud classification published by the World Meteorological Organisation. The cloud has characteristic dramatic and chaotic undulations, and it was brought to meteorologists’ attention by images submitted to the Cloud Appreciation Society by our members around the world. We still receive many photos of asperitas, such as this example submitted through our CloudSpotter iPhone app by ‘hazydaze’ who spotted it over Southwick, East Sussex, England. . #cloudappreciation #cloudspotting #cloudaday #clouds #cloud #asperitas

This bright trail of cloud, spotted last week by Colleen Thomas over San Francisco, California, was a rare and unusual example of a noctilucent cloud. These form way higher than normal ‘weather’ clouds, their ice crystals appearing all the way up in the mesosphere at altitudes of 50 miles / 85 kms. Up there at the fringes of Space, such clouds still catch the light when the Sun is well over the horizon and the rest of the sky is dark. Named from the Latin for ‘night-shining’, they are unusual, mysterious formations. And the one spotted last week over California was particularly so. This night-shining cloud didn’t have the usual bluish, ghostly, rippled appearance of most noctilucent clouds. It looked more like a twisted aircraft condensation trail. It was also in the wrong part of the globe. Noctilucent clouds usually form much nearer the Poles. San Francisco, at a latitude of just over 37°, is way outside the 50°–70° latitudes where such formations are normally observed. And then there’s the time of the year. Noctilucent clouds are generally spotted in the summer months, which is when the upper atmosphere, counterintuitively, is at its coldest. Why then would one appear so far south, and in the middle of winter? This particular night-shining cloud was in fact a condensation trail – one formed not by a aircraft but by a meteor. As the meteor burned up in the upper atmosphere, it produced specs of meteor dust, and these acted as tiny seeds onto which the ice crystals of the cloud could start to freeze. It likely disintegrated long before reaching the ground, but in its wake hung the rarest of sights for Californian skies: a noctilucent trail shining bright in the twilight; ice, born of a meteor, adrift in the currents of the upper mesosphere. . #cloudappreciation #cloudspotting #cloudaday #clouds #cloud #noctilucent

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will ensure as long as life lasts… There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.” . From 'The Sense of Wonder' (1965) by Rachel Carson. . A sun pillar reveals the location of the Sun below the horizon. This simple and delicate optical effect is formed by the collective glints of light off countless tiny ice crystals suspended in the freezing air. Spotted by ‘JamesH’ over Alpine, near Nuiqsut, North Slope Borough, Alaska. . We would like to wish you a very Happy Christmas, if you happen to celebrate it, from us all at the Cloud Appreciation Society. . #cloudappreciation #cloudspotting #cloudaday #clouds #cloud #christmas

A large cloud train appears to cross the John Ringling Causeway over Sarasota Bay, Florida, US, spotted by Amy Dahan (Member 44,044). The roll cloud is in fact further away than it seems. It is a volutus, a low, horizontal roll of cloud, that was most likely caused by cool sea breezes colliding with a warmer air mass over the land. . #cloudappreciation #cloudspotting #cloudaday #clouds #cloud #volutus
