I love watching the sky here in Powell River because there are so many different types of clouds. Today I'm going to share some of our cirrus clouds. Cirrus are thin, wispy, high level clouds that are blown into long streamers. Cirrus clouds form above 6000 m (20,000 ft.) and usually mean the weather will be fair.
Cirrus Vertebratus looks like a spinal column with vertebra and ribs or fish bones.
Cirrus radiatus cover the sky in bands.
These clouds caught the light and were coloured by the sun setting to the west. -- Margy
