Nature Walk: Altocumulus Clouds

Altocumulus clouds

“Altocumulus clouds are tiny cumulus clouds that form a repeating pattern over a widespread area of the sky. They are the most dramatic when they occur at sunset. You can see in this image they may be followed by or mixed with other types of clouds. They occur at a mid-level in the atmosphere and are sometimes called cloudlets.” – Carl Kurtz
