@the OP photo, it's odd and not long ago, here in Arkansas, there was a startling formation that looked just like this:
Guess what? It too is called a "mammatus cloud formation". I've never seen this before. Why are these formations suddenly popping up? Why is there no real explanation for them? I just see a bunch of hypothesis. Why are they so very pronounced and ominous lately--how is the human psyche tied into this if at all? I've never been instinctively anxious around clouds until I saw them and now again with seeing your photo.edit on 29-6-2012 by TheLegend because: (no reason given)
Erm, what? Mammatus clouds have been around since the dawn of time. They're not even very rare,

These types of clouds have been known for decades apparently.
That doesn't mean they are "natural" by any means. Anything after 1900 & Nikola Tesla is fair game for argumentation & speculation. My 1st encounter with Mammatus clouds was 2010.
Regardless, there's nothing you or I can do about them or their weirdness.
Let's just embrace the horror of modern technology and their lack of disclosure.
In the ancient Vedic scriptures there was a mention of how vimanas (spacecrafts use by the gods) functioned and were built. In it they stated that the vimana could produce a cloudlike cover.
