The Perfect Storm: Undulatus Asperatus
Storm chaser Alex Schueth captured a timelapse of a rare cloud formation called an ‘undulatus asperatus,’ a rolling pattern of clouds that gives you the impression you’re underwater and looking up at the waves on the surface.
These formations seem like an ominous sign of the things to come (thanks, global warming), these clouds usually dissipate before a storm actually occurs. Although the movement is actually very slight, time lapse gives the clouds a sense of motion that would be otherwise undetectable to the impatient lay person. Tell the truth, 20 seconds in you would’ve taken out your phone and started checking Instagram.
