Yesterday an unusual weather phenomenon over the mountains East of Albuquerque, a lenticular cloud caused by winds slamming into the other side of the mountains.

@Kachina624  It's a stunning photo!  I'm so glad you know the particular phenomenon to cause that appearance.  Years ago people would have definitely claimed it to be a UFO.  I always enjoy seeing pictures of your part of the country!

That's really cool! I live in Colorado and we get those kind of clouds, especially along the front range. Sometimes Pikes Peak looks like it's wearing a hat.

Gorgeous photo.  You live in a lovely part of the country.

 

The UFO explanation ..... hmmmmm

Seems every time there is a UFO, there's always a denial.  I'll take your description though as a fact.

Thanks for sharing.

I mean...that’s what “they” tell you to believe. But, we know that’s really little green men in there.


Seriously though, awesome photo. Love seeing strange cloud phenomena.
