Astonishingly beautiful cloud formations

A collection of beautiful and unusual cloud formations. The 5th one in the series is an obvious photoshop of the second one, but all the rest appear to be genuine, and breathtaking. Here are three samples:

Meterological phenomena are captivating.

Sun Pillar, Clarissa  MN  11.22.10

This stunning sun pillar was photographed in Clarissa  MN  on 11-22-2010, but I can’t remember who sent it to me. I saw a perfect moon pillar once, but sadly had no camera with me to capture it. Sundogs, haloes and pillars are formed when ice crystals in the atmosphere align in particular ways to reflect light. To see one is a rare and impressive event.

The Old Wolf has spoken.
