Sky Watch #109: August Sky

23 Sep

A month ago while running errands I found this band of clouds stretching a few miles really fascinating.


Happy Autumn every body. We are getting our little taste of summer here this week. Where I live we are expected to reach the 80s for a few days. This is typical weather pattern here – September/Fall is when we feel the heat.

Sky Watch is a weekly gathering of sky lovers and sky watchers. Join us.

    These are wonderful shots of the unexpected sky. Funny how we both posted bands this week although shooting skies at opposite sides of the U.S.

    Interesting! I wonder what kind of weather system would create a ribbon of cloud!

    Nice shots of unusual clouds. We sometimes get clouds like this when waves of air dive off our mountains and roll around several miles out.

    Blue sky was painted with ‘silky’ white clouds. Lovely!

    Those are really bizarre! Never seen them before. It was a strange summer weather-wise though, so maybe that’s why they made an appearance in the Bay Area!!
