Unusual Air

I got these photos from a news from Yahoo! and a link to LiveScience

“Unusual Air” cuz the photos are of weather.

The first one is from a June 20, 2006 photo. They say this one deserves to be made into a new cloud type.  The clouds seem to be straight from a Sci-fi movie but according to the news, it’s a real photo. You be the judge.

"It looked like Armageddon," said Wiggins, a paralegal and amateur photographer in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. "The shadows of the clouds, the lights and the darks, and the greenish-yellow backdrop. They seemed to change."

This next one is of a lightning. They’ve called it a sprite – a carrot sprite at that. Y! tagged it as a strange lightning looking like a jellyfish.
