It’s A Bird! It’s A Plane! It’s… Altocumulus?

Did you recognize the unconventionally beautiful clouds this morning?



Did you seize the chance to take a few pictures?




This phenomenon is called altocumulus. According to Zhang Ruiyi from the weather bureau of Shanghai, altocumulus is formed due to the fluctuation of steady and humid air between 3,000 to 5,000 meters high.



These clouds are of various shapes, some are like waves, some look like cotton, and others look like scales. The appearance of the altocumulus is telling us that today is going to be another fine day!
