The interesting cloud formation pictured above was taken from western Ireland, near Connamara, on the afternoon of July 26, 2005. It was an amazing experience to see this thick 'blanket' coming in over my head! At first I thought it could be a type of morning glory (gravity wave), or maybe even the approaching edge of a dense stratus deck? Note that there appears to be little or no convection (minimal vertical development). See the links below for other cloud photos and descriptions.
