Photos of Clouds and Skies (That you took yourself)

Thanks - I hadn't come across that cloud formation but that sounds spot on:


http://nephology.eu/cirrus/cirrus-radiatus

I just checked the date. It was Jan 2 at about 3.15pm, facing southwest. Looking at the satellite view from a bit earlier that day you can see the bands of cirrus ahead of the cloud which was moving up from the south. The cloud "rays" were aligned SW-NE so they would have been pointing almost directly at the camera, appearing to converge due to perspective.

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!

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.

EDIT: Looks like I'm failing at posting images... How do I upload them so that they are embedded in the post as opposed to looking like thumbnails? It's been a while since I posted on forums, haha.
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].jpg 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!

I took this picture a few years ago - with a Cannon Rebel 11/20/15 in Florence Indiana.
The key for me to capture the lovely iridescence was to use an incredibly fast shutter speed- (the sky in the photo was almost black.) Then the underexposed photo was corrected with a “smart fix” filter.

I’m sorry I no longer have the original copy to share.

Wish I had a better camera...

I don’t know what kind of a cloud this is, but it was drifting slowly below the contrail. It looked like it was slowly boiling and persisted for about 10 minutes before expanding into nothing.

DD662503-1860-4D7B-A9EA-0EA1AC483690.jpeg This was so bright that I thought it was the sun for a moment. As I watched, the bright spot formed a small rainbow that slowly stretched out to maybe 4x this size, then faded quickly as the clouds moved.

Your first photo shows cirrocumulus lacunosus and your second is known as a sun dog or parhelion

Couple of winter pics from MT. First one; sunset a few nights ago. Second one today, mid-day, outside temp -7f. The haze is actually "diamond dust" - just a haze of ice crystals are continually floating around and falling (and causing the halo and faint sundogs).

I saw this gorgeous rainbow in Leeds UK and thought you might appreciate it.

Sorry about the surroundings.

66A00D4D-1DC2-4CA5-BDCC-FEB9D59F701C.jpeg I took this one because of the clouds but the contrails and moon added something, too. The clouds were lined up in these lozenge shapes over the desert as the wind picked up and the weather began a 2-day turn from hot to cool.

One of the few rainbows I’ve seen with all 7 colors visible. Does anyone know why there is another color band below violet?

Yesterday’s sunset, with quite a striking contrail. As ever, the phone camera doesn’t reproduce sunset colours very well.

Weird break in the clouds outside my work this morning. Lasted maybe 5 min before the rain started. SE Michigan.
Looks like a shelf cloud

Not sure what type of clouds these might be. They were not dropping rain, but have a similar tail. Perhaps the Army of Cthulhu? This is from Palmdale, looking south over the mountains to Los Angeles. Ground level wind was right-to-left, coast-to-desert.

It's virga coming from altocumulus
