This stunning postcard features not only a bright full moon, and majestic Mt. Rainier in Washington, but also, a great example of a smooth lenticular cloud.
They form at high altitude over mountains.
Living in the midwest part of the US, I don't routinely get to see mountains. But, whenever I travel to where there ARE mountains, I am thrilled!
A month ago, I was way, way beyond thrilled when I spotted this lenticular cloud formation over some mountains in Montana!
It looks like a tall stack of pancakes. If I hadn't already had breakfast, I would have gone straight to I.H.O.P to celebrate! :)
