Cloud Tubes

Oh, how I would love to see these clouds in person!! These clouds are called Morning Glory Clouds and can run 600 miles long!! They can also move up to 35 miles per hour which can actually cause problems for airplanes on windless days.

Every year these Morning Glories appear in Australia, specifically over a tiny town with less than 200 people. I guess people travel to this little town each year, in hopes of seeing the Morning Glories. I may be one of them next year!

This photo was captured by photographer Mick Petroff from his airplane near Australia’s Gulf of Carpenteria.
