Waves of clouds

While taking pictures of yesterday’s solar eclipse some clouds moved in obscuring the view right as it was nearing its maximum. These clouds in and of themselves proved to provide a pretty cool photo opportunity.

Called ‘KH Clouds’ or Kelvin-Helmholtz Clouds , these take on a form resembling a series of ocean waves. Differences in wind velocities at two different layers of air cause these cool formations. You can read more about KH Clouds here.
