CBC News reported that a cloud formation called a mammatus appeared in the skies above Regina and area following a thunderstorm Tuesday night, June 26, 2012.

Regina is the capital city of Saskatchewan in Canada.

This is a rare atmospheric phenomenon.

Mammatus or mammatocumulus looks something like cotton balls, puffs and bubbles.

I think it looks spooky 🙂

I love to look at the clouds and try to identify their types but I have never seen mammatus.

The types of clouds that we see can give us some clues about the weather of the day.

  1. This is first time too I’m seeing Mammatus Cloud which are so beauty (or spooky). This cloud formation is categorized in Cumulonimbus but I’ve never seen it at here. For more information about Mammatus Cloud you can surf at Wikipedia – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mammatus_cloud

    P.s: Why they called ‘mammatus cloud’ but not ‘puff cloud’ or ‘bubbles cloud’? Well.. just check it out.. he he 🙂
