Spotted this video today.
This is the first time i`ve seen a cloud with a shadow behind it.

youtu.be...

It seems to be layered too .
Pretty strange one that i`d thought i`d share.

Having a bit of trouble with the link.

that is kind of cool. I know that you can see shadows of clouds on the ground, from an air plane...

But I am wondering what would be the light source casting a shadow up... into....I guess another cloud?

WOW! I've never seen anything as stunning and I've seen a lot of cloud pics.

I wonder if it's some sort of anticrepuscular-ray effect but not sure how it's done in this instance. I'm sure someone with a bit of science can explain the angles etc..

Could there be something on the ground reflecting a lot of light back up? Maybe a field of solar panels, mirrors, etc. Do we know where this was filmed?


Edit to add, I found this, not nearly as cool as video in the OP but there's an explanation there. epod.usra.edu...

I see what you mean but the Sun is behind the cloud and the shadow seems to be behind the Sun.

I showed it to my friend who attends geograhy / meteorological studies and he said he has never ssn such thing and it is either a fake or some very unusual wheather fenomena. He will show it to someone else, he's not best student around
but he considers clouds / storms his speciality. So... anyone has some theory?

I just think the shape of this one is fantastic. It's like a giant leaf, or the way frost goes on a window. No wonder the bloke's all excited. I would be too.

Reminds me of some strange clouds I took pics of last month.
These were snapped in my backyard as a storm front rolled in. I was actually just impressed by how dark the sky got. It wasn't until I looked at the first image I snapped in play back that I saw the cloud formations higher up, so I snapped a few more.

I think that the shadow was caused by the reflection of sunlight from the top surface of a layer of cloud two levels below the cloud on which the shadow was projected.

That is some genuine footage fantastic
The question is what are they reflecting off?

SnF ofcourse for this, thanks

Proof we live in a Truman sphere. Hey guys your lighting is way off!

Anyway, the sun looks to be coming from the right of the clouds and the shadow is casting up? Doesn't look like it's cause by the sun. Possibly the wind or whatever from the "bottom" cloud pushing threw the top whispier clouds making it appear to be a shadow.

I dunno really but very cool indeed!

I`m still stumped by it.
I`ll be surprised if someone comes out and proves this is fake. ( maybe it is )
Maybe someone will come up with an explanation for how this occurred.

I've seen and photographed similar effects numerous times. Here's an example (though not perhaps as good as the one in the video)



It's all down to the position of the sun

At times when I am at home there is a blue cloud that will sit near my home. Its funny because when the clouds are around you can see it BEHIND THEM ILLUMINATING as soon as they clear its invisible. When cloud cover comes back its there I made a thread on it when I first noticed it. It doesnt seem to come round till late and its not always there but when it is its pretty cool. When I first seen it it had a white cloud not to far from it that was illuminating behind the cloud cover and --it cut on and off then left for good--. When I say clouds that is the best way I can explain it. But the white one never returned only the blue one. The white one I seen only once the blue one I always see. It doesnt mind photos either I tried with my phone its barley seen in the phone image but it can bee seen. There is so much going on here I LOVE IT
earth



here is what I wrote and when
www.abovetopsecret.com...

Late night yesterday night looks at the sky
Catches a breeze why watching the clouds fly

Breeze thru window good energy felt better
Oh what can it be to bring forth this weather

Clouds over head rain drizzles here and there
Stares at the clouds sitting in the air

Grey clouds white clouds oh that's fine
With blue clouds white clouds that even shine!!!

Shine cobalt blue behind the clouds
Clouds move past, lol nothing there now

Clouds cover again & sees a lil peep
Smiles once again before I go to sleep

White cloud oh white clouds enjoyed the LIGHT
Hidden beside neighbor cloud of blue last night...

Stared and watched as clouds moved by
Once no cloud cover white cloud shine hide

Cloud cover back again white shine seen
Watches it closely cut off like a BEAM!!!!

Gone gone white cloud shiny and fun
But there remained the blue cloud that cobalt one

Rain drizzle drizzle Blue "STILL"cloud there
Hidden behind clouds now deep in stare

Sky lights up of left of blue*
Even if you don't believe this true

Cobalt sitting cloud sits all night
time seems endless knew I was right

FEAR no FEAR NOT cool is what I felt
Not something that seems to want to harm thy health

Poem a poem for the conspirators mind
Seems yes oh yes they been here all the time.

Experienced last night. 3-21-11 around 1am or so

not derailing your OP just adding that some things with the clouds are unexplained, to some of us.
