    The description reads:

    It does look like an ocean of waves, which is precisely what a layer of altocumulus clouds look like. This type of straight line demarkation though is unusual, but not unprecedented. Here's one viewed from above in Pennsylvania, Tuesday November 11th, 2008. Photo by Anson Mount.

    Here's another from the UK, Isle of Wight, August 24th, 2007

    And another, UK, April 11, 2009


    Of course there are a variety of reasons why we might find straight edges in clouds, as explained by Meteorologist David R. Cook:

    I noticed a cool Nasa photo taken by everyone's favourite astronaut Buzz Aldrin and James Lovell on Gemini XII mission

    Another appears in Arthur Clayden's 1905 Cloud studies
