    The event spans a 2 hour period where these cloud formations changed shape and colors over and over! ONe fascinating bit, the cloud is actually behind the mountain aways, not touching as it looks like. This lenticular cloud got its start early in the morning. Driving up the hill to go cut wood, I saw it begin to form in the same position it held all day!

    Washington State, Southern Washington Cascade Mountain Range, United States, Mt. Adams. This is a volcano, dormant... and it often gets little cloud caps, but this was something amazing and different for sure!

    Original Post: EXPLORE #1 THANKS TO ALL OF YOU!!!! wow, I just came home after all day away, and was stunned to see this made #1, and thank you for all the faves, comments, views, invites and awards!

    INFO
    thanks to glenelg48

    Altocumulus lenticularis. These formations are caused by wave motions in the atmosphere and are frequently seen in mountainous or hilly areas. They are often called wave clouds. They may be triggered off by hills only a few hundred metres high and may extend downwind for over 100 km. The cloud elements form at the windward edge of the cloud and are carried to the downwind edge where they evaporate, as can be seen here. The cloud as a whole is usually stationary or slow moving.
