Clouds are easily some of the coolest natural features that Mother Earth exhibits. Not only do they add an element of mystery to almost every setting, but they always come in cool shapes and formations. They fill our skies like paint fills an empty canvas.
You’ve probably seen most types of clouds either in real life or in textbooks (remember learning about cloud formations?) But, this type of cloud is likely one that you’ve never seen--unless you’re living in Fujisawa, Japan.
Twitter user @pmxpvrtmx (Poppy) snapped a pic of this perfectly spherical cloud just sitting in the skies above homes and businesses.
“When I looked out of the car window I saw a round ball-shaped cloud. I gazed at the cloud for a while then I rushed to take the photo. When I saw the cloud it was an even more spherical shape, so I regret not taking the photo more quickly,” wrote Poppy.
Climatologists have commented on the phenomena, stating that they believe it’s most likely a “roll cloud,” which are typically formed “by outflows of cold air from sea breezes or cold fronts.”
How cool is this cloud?
