I can't find where to post the pictures from the page, but another very amazing roll cloud.

I've never seen one in person. Seems like some people would get scared watching something like that roll into their town.

Wow! That is really cool. Thanks for sharing

It kind of looks like one of those chemtrail pictures. Except the first one, that one looks like a tsunami

You really can't understand a roll cloud until you see it in motion:

Its name isn't just based on the shape. It literally rolls.

I'm a few hours east of Toronto, we had a big rain storm the other night and then the sky turned a really odd orange. I was joking that it was a "doomsday sky" My girlfriend called me from work and said the sun was really abnormal to look outside, and that many people at her work were outside getting pics. I took a few pics from the window, I just remembered. Maybe Ill upload em tomorrow.

Looks too close to the roll cloud coming off a nuclear bomb explosion, although beautiful, I would probably be running for cover.

Awesome pictures though.

Roll Cloud or Morning Glory Cloud

The Morning Glory cloud is a rare meteorological phenomenon occasionally observed in different locations around the world. The southern part of Northern Australia's Gulf of Carpentaria is the only known location where it can be predicted and observed on a more or less regular basis. The settlement of Burketown attracts glider pilots intent on riding this phenomenon.

Morning Glory clouds can most often be observed in Burketown in September to mid—November, when the chance to see it early in the morning is approximately 40%.[1]

A Morning Glory cloud is a roll cloud that can be up to 1,000 kilometres (620 mi) long, 1 to 2 kilometres (0.62 to 1.2 mi) high, often only 100 to 200 metres (330 to 660 ft) above the ground and can move at speeds up to 60 kilometres (37 mi) per hour. Sometimes there is only one cloud, sometimes there are up to eight consecutive roll clouds.

The Morning Glory is often accompanied by sudden wind squalls, intense low-level wind shear, a rapid increase in the vertical displacement of air parcels, and a sharp pressure jump at the surface. In the front of the cloud, there is strong vertical motion that transports air up through the cloud and creates the rolling appearance, while the air in the middle and rear of the cloud becomes turbulent and sinks.

The cloud can also be described as a solitary wave or a soliton, which is a wave that has a single crest and moves without changing speed or shape.

It's called Smog and it's been there since the early 80's.
