Photos: Rare Cloud Formation In Regina, Saskatchewan

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.

On Monday a Boeing 737 plane crash landed in San Andres Island, Colombia.

1 person died and 6 were seriously injured.

The plane crashed in a thunderstorm at 1:49 am.

It slided on the runway and broke apart.

The report says that the pilot’s name is Wilson Gutierrez.

He is a great pilot because he can stop the plane from hitting the airport.

If the plane hit the airport, more people will be killed.

It will then be a bigger disaster.

People don’t know if the aeroplane was hit by a lightning or a gust of wind.

And firefighters had stopped the beginning of fire on a wing.

It is the opposite when everybody in the Pakistani plane crash were killed.
