Clouds can certainly be amazing, can’t they? These ones are particularly incredible and give the appearance that the sky is made of cotton balls or bubble wrap. It’s hard to believe that this photo isn’t retouched but these clouds are 100% real. They’re called mammatus clouds, appropriately enough. The word stems from the Latin “mamma” which means “udder” or “breast” – an accurate description of their appearance. These clouds are formed when cold air sinks down and creates the pockets you see here. They’re closely associated with severe thunderstorms so if you ever see them, keep an eye on the weather!
