Have You Ever Seen A Cloud Like This One? Blew Me Away

In nature on December 5, 2009 at 4:21 pm

Cloud I was walking into my building Friday afternoon around 2:00 p.m. when I saw this cloud and could not believe my eyes. Not only was there one   in a shape I had never anywhere seen like this, but two of them! Snapped as many pics as I could.

I’m a huge fan and collector of antique paisley shawls, and the central image of every paisley pattern is the boteh, a Persian word meaning bush. It is an ancient symbol, thought to represent the cypress tree. This reminded me immediately of a huge celestial boteh.

What’s it doing in the sky over my head?

Have you ever seen this shape? When and where? Meteorologists, help me out!

  1. Wow! It looks a like a delicate feather. You almost want to reach out and touch it. Makes me think about my childhood when I spent hours staring at the clouds and pointing out shapes.

  2. Doesn’t it, though? I found it so mysterious and beautiful I wanted to share it.
