I personally love clouds... they are capeable of amazing things things, specially with the Sun or Moon behind them.  I've have had a few chances to see clouds from above while flying, and they seem even more spectacular from that angle.  Check out this article I came across.

Those are really cool clouds. I have read that clould like these were also known as cloud streets.
If the clouds are rotating they can become quite dangerous to aircraft trying to fly through them.
Sounds interesting...Go on.

I just saw these type of clouds for the first time on my way to Colorado last May.  Looked out the window at about 35 thousand feet and there they were.  Truly amazing.

I've got plenty of pics of Colorado and it's beauty on my Facebook page....but didn't take any pics from the plane.  My camera was in my carry on, stuffed way away up high.  Bummer.  Next time....I'm taking my camera and keeping it within reach.

Did that even make sense?  Sorry...I'm running on 2 hours sleep.  Saw Steely Dan last night up at the Gibson (Universal).  They played for two solid hours.....and it took us 3 to get home.  I love it when they close freeways at midnight!!!  But I did dream of Double Helix in the Sky Tonight.....(or was that early this morning?  yeah.)   8)
