Canterbury Arch 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...

 

Maybe it is an Undulatus cloud? See asperatus in wikipedia or
