    I can’t decide what looks tastier; the giant potato-looking Moeraki Boulders or the striped icebergs. The Asperatus Clouds are cool, and although they don’t look very appetizing – definitely a pretty good malapropism for “Asparagus Clouds”. Mmmmm……….

      Nothing I love more than some good malapropism.

      And what are you talking about? Asparagus clouds look DELICIOUS. You could totally dip a strawberry into that whip.

        And they were spotted in Texas!

          Definitely saw Asperatus Clouds near Melfort Saskatchewan. It was wild. Got some pretty good pictures too.

    Wow, I had such a fun time looking through all of these! The x-files loving, geeky kid in me does tend to refuse solid scientific evidence and chalks up strange phenomenon to other worldly influence… yeah, it’s stupid.

    I love every single one of these and want to put seeing them all on my bucket list. Man, this was cool!

    Great article, but I won’t lie, I hate the “paged” thing. Anyway to show it all on one page?

      Sorry man, just something new we’re trying for now.

    The foxfire and gravity wave are just WILD. Great job putting this together, Sarah.

    What a brilliant piece! I love all of these, especially the striped iceberg and the nacreous clouds.

    The foxfire looks like something off Pandora, and the Asperatus clouds like something out of Ghostbusters!

    In addition to double rainbows, triple rainbows can occur too! During a trip to the Hawaiian island of Kaua’i this summer, I witnessed a triple rainbow on two separate occasions! The locals said they get vibrant, pronounced raindows- single, double, and triple- fairly often.

    Hi,

    Gravity wave — wild and weird. Surreal. Love it.

    Simply Amazing!

    I read somewhere (maybe here) about a type of rain storm that occurs most often in the Northwest of the States (still not often though) that is called like a microburst or something. It like can take down trees…… Yeah, I’m not too sure.

    Any ideas or links anyone?

    This got me thinking about that. This makes me want to write about weather in a whole new way.

    Cheers!

    Awesome, pleasure reading and watching.

    Growing up in Winnipeg (Canadian prairie) we often had a winter phenomena that we dubbed “star holes”. On a night with a thick cloud layer there would be a perfectly round opening through which the starlight would shine. I think some people called them “angel holes”. Anyone else familiar with them?

    Those clouds are hauntingly beautiful.

  • haitravel

    I wonder how they could take those perfect pictures?

    Hey Sarah, here’s a couple things you might not know: double rainbows are fairly common in Wyoming, the second rainbow always has its color pattern reversed, and one of the best examples of lava columns would be Devils Tower ( also in Wyoming). Loved you pictures !
