Amazing shot, & on a phone too!

Google tells me that:
Lenticular clouds, technically known as altocumulus standing lenticularis, are stationary lens-shaped clouds that form at high altitudes, normally aligned at right-angles to the wind direction.

Where stable moist air flows over a mountain or a range of mountains, a series of large-scale standing waves may form on the downwind side. Lenticular clouds sometimes form at the crests of these waves. Under certain conditions, long strings of lenticular clouds can form, creating a formation known as a wave cloud.

Sorry my friend, I don’t speak Chinese and all I know it’s a cloud. But anyway, thanks for explanations:-D

Doug, those standing waves are used by full size glider guiders and they are capable of taking the glider up to about 5 times the height of the mountain that caused them. That can be a huge height and the pilots have to have warm clothing and oxygen to ride them. A 5000' hill and you could get to 25,000'


My ambition for a good while is to grow old disgracefully. So far my wife tells me that I am doing really well!

Try about 76,000 feet using the Andes, no engine

I haven't seen that before Jack so thank you for the link! I don't think that I will try that my any of my models. The highest that I know I have been was just over 1000 feet and the 10' model looked very small and with the close laws from our wonderful CAA even that would be a 'naughty' these days thanks to selfish clowns who have bought quadcopters and haven't a clue what to do with them. The minority screw it for the rest of us!

I did not know that so thanks - I'm afraid of getting up a ladder so wouldn't suit me :-)
I've seen photos of these types of clouds over Mt Shasta & see statements that they are actually "cover" for UFO's, but always thought they looked magnificent regardless!

Seems like my Chinese explanation helped start a discussion which can be better than just Likes hahaha

John you'd best sign up for a Mars trip and take your gliders. Interesting storey about those high flying gliders, about the viability of wing-borne exploration of Mars

Those lenticular clouds are awesome. Thanks for posting and the follow up explanation.
