Default Strange cloud formations in PP.

We got out just in time, then! Left yesterday morning at 6.30 and it was just tipping it down. I knew something was about to happen. Grabbed a shot of the cloud formation above the beach on Friday evening. Dramatic?!

Wow, great pics. Assume they were taken in front of the Stay restaurant?
The clouds look like blown glass?

I ain't no expert, but seem to recall something on the news recently about a new type of cloud formation being 'discovered' and given a suitable 'cloud' type name.
The pictures certainly show an unusual formation - wonder if this is what the news report was talking about?

Perhaps I should have consulted Wikipedia before my last message. Check out Undulatus asperatus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Make what you will of Undulatus asperatus.

Speaking to the experts at work it would seem this was indeed a rare occurrence of this newly named cloud, they are quite excited by the pictures on here, if anyone else has anymore they would be interested in seeing them so please post. Also, coincidently, at the same time this cloud was forming over PP, on the Friday night BBC 1 show 'The One Show' they had a item all about the clouds, its on iPlayer if you want to see it.

I am sure this was earlier in the day when we had those strange clouds, comming back from Alcudia on the bus, the beach was deserted. [IMG][/IMG]

And this was a few minutes earlier, not so impressive of the clouds , but you can still see them.[IMG][/IMG]

I won`t be offended if you remove them, if they are not what you were after regarding the clouds.

Does my heart good to see folk still notice things like this instead of walking around with their heads angled down at 45 degrees staring at a bl---dy screen all day . Well done !!
