Beautiful, right? Looks like gigantic ocean waves are crashing over snow-capped mountains.

Here’s more information about how Kelvin-Helmholtz clouds form EarthSky:

“Kelvin-Helmholtz clouds are named for Lord Kelvin and Hermann von Helmholtz, who studied the physics of the instability that leads to this type of cloud formation. A Kelvin-Helmholtz instability forms where there’s a velocity difference across the interface between two fluids: for example, wind blowing over water.”
