A surf wave, one might say, were it not for the fact that it's a cloud formation (top photo), crumpled by a strong storm front that hit Sicily on May 20, 2023. A phenomenon as fascinating as it was ephemeral, it lasted just a few seconds as observed from the city of Catania. Note the mammatus clouds in the middle photo and the asperitas sky characteristics in the bottom photo. Magnificent skies indeed!
