    Beautiful.

    The first one is an amazing reflection and the last one looks like a wave sequence.

    The third one…OMG SKY HAX

    fracked again

    1. Ship wave cloud seen from space. Prince Edward Islands in the Indian Ocean caused these.

    2. Mamma clouds, as in mammary, typically under big anvil thunderclouds, probably due to turbulent winds.

    3 and 4. “New” could type, tentatively called asperatus. Not much is known about these.

    5. “Kelvin-Helmholtz cloud”. Had to look these up. Shearing winds at cloud level cause these waves. Occur wouldwide, but very rarely.

    I think you mean mammatus clouds, not “mammary” clouds. Lolz.

    fracked again

    Nope. Mammatus is also used, but both come from the latin for udder, mamma.

    #4 would have me heading to the nearest bomb shelter.

    HoChunk

    Or holy ground.

    I just saw #2 a few days ago in New York City. Absolutely beautiful, especially after a major thunderstorm. Very eery though.
