But what's happening in the sky is perhaps not as rare as many thought. The effect even has a scientific name, the Kelvin–Helmholtz instability. It generally occurs at the cloud level in areas where winds can build up significant speed.

Just when you think Mother Nature has shown us everything....Wave Clouds

Nature never fails to amaze me...

Whether seen in the sky or in the ocean, this type of turbulence always forms when a fast-moving layer of fluid slides on top of a slower, thicker layer, dragging its surface.

Now they just have to figure out a way to surf them...

I couldn't help but wonder what the ancients would think if they saw that? They always seemed to make up crazy theories to explain things, like a lunar eclipse was a dragon eating a moon, and things like that, so what would their reaction be to this?

I saw some really weird clouds the other day, they looked sort of like the surface of water in the ocean, all wavy and stuff, except in the sky. It's hard to explain, but I've never seen clouds like them.

I'm a huge cloud fan. Just WOW.

So curly.

Might the clouds you saw be undulus asperatus? Google them and see. I think they were named as a new cloud type in 2010.
