Oh my goodness. Just amazing. Did you see it too?
There was an abundance of alto-cumulus yesterday in Huddersfield.
Hey, you guys, look - I made a door…..
I like how cirrus clouds look like someone spilt coloured sugar all over the sky at sunset.
I love the combination of the clouds, street lights and silhouetted trees…and the lonely star.
Height of base: 18,000 - 40,000 ft
Latin: cirrus - lock or tuft of hair
Cirrus are short, detached, hair-like clouds found at high altitudes. These delicate clouds are wispy with a silky sheen or look like tufts of hair. In the day time, they are whiter than any other cloud in the sky. While the sun is setting or rising, they may take on the colours of the sunset.
