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.

Wallenda tightrope walks across Niagara Falls

On Friday June 15, 2012, aerialist Nik Wallenda became the first person to cross over the Niagara Falls on tightrope.

An aerialist is an acrobat who performs in the air, on a suspended apparatus such as a trapezeropecloud swingaerial cradleaerial silkaerial hoop, or dance pole.

He walked on a 2-inch (5-cm) cable from the U.S. side to the Canadian side over the Horseshoe Falls in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

He must be very brave. 

I had visited the Niagara Falls, New York and I wish to visit the falls again but I would not want to try to cross it on tightrope because it is too dangerous.

So, I’ll use the Rainbow Bridge to cross the falls to Canada.
