Lenticular Clouds Facts

what is a lenticular cloud

A special type of cloud is often mistaken for a UFO. These clouds, known as ‘lenticular clouds’ form above a mountain when a breeze creates a number of ‘standing’ waves on the downwind side of the mountain. If the temperature is right the moisture will condense to produce a lens or saucer shaped cloud. These clouds can be dangerous for pilots of large planes who avoid flying over these planes due to the turbulence above them.

  1. I would like to know whether the layered lenticular cloud is real or the lenticular cloud with just one layer or both. If someone could tell me, it would really help with my project.

  2. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer
    for your site. You have some really good articles
    and I believe I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some
    of the load off, I’d love to write some content for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.
    Please blast me an e-mail if interested. Thank you!
