Does anyone know the name of this type of cloud... other than Fred or Emily ;o) Sharon. Never saw a cloud shaped into a point.

This is amazing! Never seen something like this. We should ask Bruce da Moose, he knows a lot about meteorology.

Hello Sharon. A very interesting cloud formation. Maybe a UFO made this strange cloud. Well I know they are in Nevada. I saw them on Ytube. Like and Y*. Best REgards, David

Wow! What a shot! Don't know about the UFO though. Could be the fracture line along a parallel dimension.

Sharon, I have no idea what would cause a cloud like this. UFO or fracture line along a parallel dimension sound better than anything I could come up with. I'm pretty sure it's not a Fred or Emily, but I wouldn't rule out Sherman (mostly because it reminds me of Sherman the shark in the comics). Whatever it is, it's certainly interesting.

Sharon, I got a picture of a strange cloud today.

It was a beautiful blue sky. The cloud was a bonus but the sky was a great color. Best to everyone and thanks for the comments. Sharon

It's a "Turn Left" cloud.

Hi Itallica. Your definition sounds pretty reasonable. I like it. Thanks, Sharon

Thanks All. It was a cloud unlike any I have ever seen. I just happened to have my camera, which rarely happens when I see something different or beautiful or just want it / Hope everyone had a great weekend. ~~WCS~~
