Weird clouds

Clouds can look like marching troops or flying saucers or breaking waves or as if a celestial chariot has done a doughnut in the sky. Let's take a look at what these clouds look like and why, and in which circumstances you might see them.

You know Trollibear.. a wise man once said "if you don't want people to know the level of your intelligence don't open your mouth" so perhaps you should go ahead an shut yours. people come here to post their views on "Elemental Art" not to be harassed by lowlife cyber bullies like yourself. now please refrain from making not only your self but those in Nebraska look even more foolish. BTW I love storm clouds :p

In Nebraska, these are called "clouds". Whoop de doo. Look like belly skin, which would be a way cooler name.

In southern Louisiana, street clouds (hair rollers) are the most beautiful fomations in the sky.  Living in a semi-rural setting, they are easier for me to notice and see.  But, I agree that they are not  common.

Born and live in Ks. See this about 3-4 times a year after t-storms, not that unusual.
