GORGEOUS cloud photos. They totally look photoshopped, because the clouds are so puffy and full! But apparently they're real, just a very special cloud formation that isn't seen too often. They're called Mammatus clouds and are formed whe teh air is saturated with rain droplets/ice crystals and begins to sink. Usually appear after a nasty storm.

That is the coolest thing I've ever seen in the sky.

I've never seen that.
I've never been to Europe.

It's like some giant, multifingered palm getting ready to smack down.

Oh wow. That is absolutely stunning!

I love looking at strange cloud formations, and after taking a few atmo sci classes a couple of years back, my interest has only intensified. If you see anything else this awesome, you ought to post it right away!
