Like a hat in the sky
Yuri told us:
Like a hat in the sky! This is the view from a few nights ago. I captured it at high altitude plains in the Chilean Andes mountains. The moon was already pretty bright and I was lucky to witness an incredible lenticular cloud formation. The Orion constellation is visible on the right, while the Andromeda galaxy is shining on the left. It was a truly majestic experience standing in the middle of the dry salt lake area peering into the endless sky.
Lenticular clouds are lens-shaped clouds that typically form where stable moist air flows over a mountain or a range of mountains. Find out more and see photos here.
Thanks for sharing your photo with us, Yuri!
