    Dude... Which satellite view did you use in this post? I am a keen cloud-spotter and have always wanted to use a satellite that shows up clouds in such amazing detail!

    That's from NASA Worldview, which shows images from the Terra MODIS satellite. It only passes a given place once each day, but the resolution is pretty good.

    A couple of Altocumulus castellanus turrets in amongst the layer of Altocumulus stratiformis. :) Took these photographs at about 15:20 today (05/10/2018) in West Berkshire, Angleterre.

    You get the option to choose full image or thumbnail when you upload. Look at the bottom of your post

    Speaking of which, here's a sun pillar I spotted the other morning DSC_0623.JPG

    20170628_125653[1]. Have long been fascinated by cloud formations over the years. One of my recent favourites (I try to take at least one per day). This one was taken outside my office in the suburbs on a pretty windless day (PE is well known for its wind).

    A nice example of a Cirrocumulus floccus homomutatus formation taken in West Berkshire at around 12:15 today (20/10/2018).

    The webbed-like appearance of this cloud distinguishes it as a Cirrocumulus lacunosus (possibly homomutatus), which I also took today (20/10/2018) in West Berkshire at about 12:30. :)

    I love clouds so much, which is why it is always amusing when chemtrailers tell me to "look up" and observe the skies!
