OMG! That’s scary… Awesome! This giant lenticular cloud floated over Gallup, New Mexico on July 17, 2018 at sunset… And then started glowing bright red!
Lenticular clouds are more or less isolated clouds, which form in the Earth’s troposphere (the lowest level of the atmosphere).
They are saucer- or lens-shaped clouds, which are typically stationary in nature.
Lenticular clouds have been divided into three different categories, altocumulus standing lenticular, stratocumulus standing lenticular, and cirrocumulus standing lenticular, depending on the height at which they may be found above the surface of the Earth.
On account of their typical shapes, lenticular clouds have been mistakenly identified as Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) in the past.
