Such a thing arose in the place of the avalanche of a dead thunder cloud. Likely to meet Asperitas requirements. Interesting ripple, less often myself become so clearly received.

    • Undulatus asperitas info

      The Undulatus asperitas cloud was approved for the International Cloud Classification in 2015.

      Previously, the cloud was called Undulatus asperatus. These are udders resembling mammatus clouds, which, however, are wavy in their basic shape.

      Undulatus asperitaxis has typically been observed in the morning and noon hours after convective thunder cell formation.

      Either clear or spectacular undulatus asperitaxes are collected in the sky. Strong, large-scale and clearly perceptible waves should be visible on the underside of the cloud. Sample images of undulatus asperitas.
