New Cloud Type Discovered: ‘Undulus Asperatus’

(METEOROLOGYNEWS.com) In the first new cloud type to be officially designated in over 50 years, members of the Cloud Appreciation Society are pushing for official recognition of the undulating, ominous-appearing clouds.

Turbulent motions between differing air masses create undulating clouds over Kansas in 2006.  Meteorologists are proposing these clouds be designated as the first new cloud type to be named in over 50 years:  Undulus Asperatus.

Turbulent motions between differing air masses create undulating clouds as seen over rural Kansas in the early morning hours of April 28, 2006. Meteorologists are proposing these clouds be designated as the first new cloud type to be named in over 50 years: Undulus Asperatus.

The Cloud Appreciation Society has designated the clouds as “Undulus Asperatus” or alternatively, “Undulatus Asperatus.”  The Latin term translates loosely as “turbulent undulation.”  Such clouds are relatively rare, but have been photographed in several areas around the world.

The ominous-looking clouds have been particularly common in the Plains states of the United States, often during the morning or midday hours following convective thunderstorm activity.  These clouds are not considered a precursor to severe weather, rather appear to form following rain or thunderstorm activity.

Jane Wiggins of Cedar Rapids, Iowa recently captured several spectacular images of the new cloud type as viewed from a downtown office building.  Several of her images have recently been published by National Geographic Magazine – an honor which Wiggins does not take lightly.

“It is a bit like looking at the surface of a choppy sea from below,” said Gavin Pretor-Pinney, founder of the Cloud Appreciation Society, who first identified the asperatus cloud from photographs that were being sent in by members of the society.

“We try to identify and classify all of the images of clouds we get in, but there were some that just didn’t seem to fit in any of the other categories, so I began to think it might be a unique type of cloud.

“The underside of the clouds are quite rough and choppy. It looks very stormy, but some of the reports we have been getting suggest that they tend to break up without actually turning into a storm.”

The Royal Meteorological Society is now gathering detailed weather data for the days and locations where the asperatus clouds have been seen in an attempt to understand exactly what is causing them.

  1. BASTARDUS CHEMTREILUS!!!!!!

  2. How much people can be stupid?,you think,very,and you are right! BRAVO!!!!!

  3. Yes people, it is geoengineering……chemical trails from jets (not condensation trails). Seems like every other day they are spraying us here in lemoore, ca. The sky starts out blue, then after a couple hrs of spraying the chemtrails the trails just linger in the sky and then become man made clouds. SAD. I wish the truth will be disclosed (about everything) sooner rather than later. People have to wake up and stop listening to the main media….they only tell u what they think we should know…not the truth!

  4. Also I have been seeing and taking pic’s of both the chemtrails & strange looking clouds for awhile now. The clouds look “wispy”…. As if the clouds are being shaken & stirred. According to zeta talk the clouds are different looking today because the earth “wobble” is increasing due to Planet X passing thru our solar system.

  5. Looks like chemulous haarpous to me.

  6. There’s no such thing as a “new cloud”. Wake up.

  7. omg, is there realy someone who can belive to this. People are dum like sheeps. They are trying to make us belive, that artificial clouds are something natural. I’m 38 years old, since I was born I never saw that kind of clouds, but god is good, and for christmas he gave us a new type of cloud called Undulus Asperatus. Thank you mr. god (Billy G.) for a new cloud, it looks like shit, becouse it is shit. Wake up people, before it’s too late.

  8. they spray FL with Chemtrails constantly. I have been in the same place over 30 years and it is very obvious to any sky or lover or plane-watcher that this is not the way it used to be, and if you look up long enough (I have filmed this phenomena for years) you can see them develop from plane emissions regardless of composition. IT IS OBVIOUS. they just take so much time to develop from jet trails that it is beyond the new brain damaged human populous’s attention span

  9. This is the result of a HAARP ultra low electromagnetic energy burst. The Chemtrails (aluminum) are sprayed and gather moisture and can be steered to generate large masses of clouds. The clouds can be activated and manipulate and steered by HAARP. Weather Derivatives. Genetically modified food. Poisonous Air. Global warming. The jet stream has been steered to melt the icecaps, lots of oil under there. We live under and breath this experiment. The consequences of playing god are epic and dire. Wake up people. What in the world is going on?

  10. Awake is correct. People need to just get a chair, sit down and watch it happen! It’s undoubtedly 100% fact that this is not a new cloud but chemicals that’s being sprayed daily to block out the sun and slow global heat index. Many countries are doing this, not just the US. The side effects on man is horrible and cancerous and they don’t want people suing them. This is why they won’t speak publicly about it. Trying to keep it quit just makes them look dumb as hell. This is mass murder. Period. And the one at the top who ok’s this stuff will Definitely rot in hell for it to.
    Murderers!

  11. I travel a lot and see this chemtrail poison in many countries . Every day I inform people but they don’t really take me serious . I tell them IF I TELL YOU SOMEBODY IS RAPING YOUR MOTHER EVERY NIGHT WOULD YOU PAY ATTENTION ? very few start thinking or investigatin .Shocking ! I believe all Christians should pray God
    punish the criminals who are poisoning our air ………..Thomas Verster globetrottter@hotmail.com

  12. Chemtrails..for sure I have been aware for a while now but the past few month s in the area I live …they have been spaying every day I have seen every shape from triangles X;s curves waves pluse’s its scary..I belive I have picture of some of the Lithium trails that were dumped the th of July ,,the 2 rockets the deployed with the payload of Lithium…..who can I report this to./.The sky’s over my house (I live way out of town in the desert ..of AZ…)are full of them its everyday and I also think there doing it at night ,,when the moons full or bright it sure looks like freshly laid trails to me

  13. I have many of these cloud pictures I took in my yard. Never seen anything ever like it ever. I live in Clayton WI…they are awsome. It was scary standing out under this unreal acurance. I was in Aw!

  14. If some one wishes to be updated with hottest technologies therefore he muist be pay a visit
    this web page and be up to date every day.

  15. Wake up, folks ! There is a lot of moisture up in them there clouds. and where has the polar ice cap gone ? the receding glaciers ? the ice in Iceland ? It is up there, and when it comes down, it comes down like in Katrinka, Sandy, St.Louis, N.Dakota, and now the Phillipines, Who;’s next ? ?? Global warming ? naaaah.

  16. Hi. Im just wondering about this clouds (“Undulus Asperatus”) if you know exactly the reason what is causing them ?
    Kind regards , Kath.

  17. Hi. Im just wondering about these Undulus Asperatus – clouds. It you know exactly what’s causing them ?
    Kind regards, Kath. (:

  18. They are chemtrails you stupid stupid fools. Don’t try to legitimize something that is slowly killing you and destroying the environment. The government invented these clouds NOT “Mother Nature.” Cumulonimbus Columbus, you want to discover something, uncover why they are killing us with this poison on a daily basis!

  19. I am regular visitor, how are you everybody? This post
    posted at this site is actually fastidious.

  20. Maybe they are caused by the chemtrails being sprayed above us

  21. Natural occurring clouds. Knowledge in meteorology will tell you this.

  22. Your kidding right? Well let’s just make up a name for a cloud that “undulates” using HAARP,RF, or Microwave “apparatus”. We not all as stupid as you may think.

  23. Let’s call it what it is….”HARRP” aka Government Created !!!!

  24. I actually haven’t seen these too often as of late since I’ve moved to different states, but I used to see them all the time when I was younger (late 80s to early/mid 90s)….Maybe they just decided there was something so unique about them that they needed their own classification…Nothing wrong with that I supposed…
