Not the movie.
A co-worker (I work with atmospheric scientists) emailed around some photos of rare clouds. They are very cool, but I’m glad I never saw these clouds in person. Because frankly, they scare me.
Maybe it’s the uncanny resemblance to UFO’s and tornadoes that spooks me. I get an eerie feeling when I look at them.
You can decide for yourself…
FYI In case you are wondering …
These are “lenticular clouds”. They’re caused when the winds are just right so when they flow over Mt. Rainier , the air gets pushed up where it cools and condenses into clouds. It’s usually a sign of rain within 24 hours because typically the moist flow that precedes a storm in this area is the perfect set up for these clouds.
