Tracks Through the Sky



This is a skyscape image. The whole horizon from North to South was connected with these unusually formed clouds. Does anyone have an idea of what type of cloud this is? As I've read a few books on them and Ican't find one that looks quite like this.


Two days are never the same.

Seems we are inside and looking up to the ribs of a large animal. Like the texturing. Sorry, don't know much about clouds. Rarely get any in my location. Well done.

Hi,
I belive this is an example of altocumulus undulatus. Middle troposphere with wavy herring bone like shape. You'll find these are between 6500 and 17000 ft and are formed with the steady rise of a large air mass, with some wind-shear (giving light turbulance usually) at cloud height. Theycpold be a sign of an approachig warm front and can lead to precipitation if the cloud thickens enough.
