New cloud formation, Undulatus Asperatus

Well slashdot is saying they’ve named a new cloud formation, apparently called undulatus asperatus (turbulent undulation). I was rather amused to see the picture and be like “oh! I have a pic of that” It happened on March 25th about 3 miles north of downtown Dallas (mockingbird and greenville ave) around 12:51pm, so I’m sure if you search flickr for that geotag/timestamp, other pictures of it will show up in outdoor pics in the background. I’m not a huge weather geek (well ok, maybe I am at heart), but when you see wacky clouds like this, it’s hard not to take pictures of them. Having a camera in your phone means documenting all sorts of crazy stuff you never would have before. Here’s my pictures of undulatus asperatus:

I went ahead and uploaded the second picture to Wikipedia for their undulatus asperatus article under the creative commons attribution 3.0 license.
