Incredible sky over BKLYN/NYC. Clouds were acting weird. Is this a mother nature in-joke, some kind of celebration for the start of summer? Salute.
Mammatus (also known as mammatocumulus, meaning “bumpy clouds”) is a meteorological term applied to a cellular pattern of pouches hanging underneath the base of a cloud. The name “mammatus” is derived from the Latin mamma (udder), due to the clouds’ characteristic shape.
