A Giant Eagle Cloud Engulfs Grand Teton Mountain

0

A bizarre sheet of wispy clouds undulating over the Teton Range enchanted tourists and even veteran employees of Grand Teton National Park.

To me, this strange cloud formation ressembles a giant eagle engulfing Grand Teton mountain… Are animal gods waking up to protect nature?

But how such an amazing cloud form? And that on top of the Grand Teton mountain, at 13,775 feet above sea level – the highest point in the Teton Range.

Some saw a seagull, others a billowing handkerchief. I say it’s a mad eagle attacking the mountain’s summit.

The lenticular clouds persisted through the morning before finally dissipating in the afternoon. They resulted from an unusual combination of strong wind and moisture between 13,000 and 14,000 feet.

Occasionally, lenticular clouds occur as perfectly symmetrical disks, appearing like giant flying saucers and prompting UFO reports.
