Cirrus cloud

Altostratus cloud

Stratus cloud
Cumulus cloud
How much do you know about clouds? According to Wikipedia, there are five main forms:
  • High clouds (cirrocumulus, cirrus and cirrostratus),
  • Middle clouds (altostratus and altocumulus),
  • Low clouds (cumulus, stratocumulus, nimbostratus and stratus),
  • Vertical clouds (cumulonimbus, cumulus, pyrocumulus) and
  • everything else.
Well okay I may have bundled the last category together but you can look at the article here is you want more details on the "everything else" clouds or on the various sub-groups of each category. And this website is devoted to shots of rare and incredible clouds if you want to check it out.
