With all the climate changes that our planet is going through, awesome cloud formations are spotted in the sky.
Here, two types: Asperatus and Mammatus:
Beautiful like a painting, a new type of cloud formation - Asperatus - has been recognized by the meteorologists in 2009. The last one was added in 1951.
These clouds have been spotted during the morning or midday hours following convective thunderstorm activity. They are not considered a precursor to severe weather, rather appear to form following rain or thunderstorm activity.The name "asperatus" is derived from the Latin asperus (rough).
Mammatocumulus - or simply Mammatus - are cloud formations often indicative of strong storms or maybe even a tornadic storm. They tend to form during warm months in several areas of the United States.
The name "mammatus" is derived from the Latin mamma (udder), due to the resemblance between the shape of these clouds and the udder of a cow. (Source: Wikipedia)
