More weird clouds
« on: September 29, 2017, 01:07:25 AM »
I got a call from our illustrious Editor, Perry White, telling me about an interesting cloud formation he had noticed. I went out on the roof and it was pretty unusual-looking. It looked like it was stretched across the sky - almost linearly - from southwest to northeast by all the wind we got today.

I tried to do a photostitch, but it was impossible. The sun was way too bright to shoot the front end of it - which happened to look like a bunny - but when it slipped behind one of the clouds, I got the below shot.

Thanks for the heads-up, Al.

This is how horribly it wouldn't stitch:

Listen to Judy Collins sing "Both Sides Now" and then look at the clouds again.

The lyrics (the relevant ones):

Both Sides Now

Joni Mitchell

Rows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I've looked at clouds that way

But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way

I've looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It's cloud's illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all



My response (and I love this Q&A in the YouTube comments: "What is the difference between the Stones and the Scottish? The Stones say 'Hey you get off of my cloud and the Scottish say 'Hey McCloud get off of my ewe"):

I just got around to downloading the rest of the cloud pix that were taken closer to sunset:
