Canterbury Arch, Asperitas or Asperatus Cloud?
An amazing sky taken off the deck of a rental home in Hanmer, NZ.
NASA wrote me and asked if they could use this photo as their Astronomy Picture of the Day. I naturally said YES!!!! Here's the link: apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130227.html They said they get about a million views a day... Posted Feb 27, 2013.
And then on April 17, 2016, they posted my photo again.
Now it seems that the name will be Asperitas, with an I !!!
See asperatus in wikipedia or
