There isn’t any ocean surfing in Wyoming, but at least they got to see some wavy clouds in the sky. Last Tuesday, wavy clouds were spotted in Sheridan, Wyoming. The Washington Post reports that Facebook users over on Wyoming Through The Lens group caught photos and videos of stunning clouds that looked similar to ocean waves.
This phenomenon is known as Kelvin-Helmholtz instability, which happens when there are different levels of air density in nearby layers of the sky. In order for these wavy clouds to form, there needs to be strong winds and moisture. The clouds occurred above the Bighorn Mountains and they were also spotted in Breckenridge back in 2015.
A video of the clouds from Tristen Holwell is below, and I think it’s safe to say it will take your breath away.
