Sierra Wave near Olancha, CA, Febr. 1980 (165°) ... or UFO? ;-)

Sierra Wave near Olancha, CA, Febr. 1980 (165°) ... or UFO? ;-)
The Sierra Wave is a type of lenticular cloud created by winds that lift off the Sierra Nevada mountain range of California. Known as lee waves, Sierra Waves form as winds hit the Sierra Nevada and are forced to rise, causing water vapor to condense as it cools and forming lenticular clouds on the leeward side of the mountain range. These clouds can remain stationary for many hours. The formation of a Sierra Wave is dependent upon many factors, including wind speed and direction, leeward wind patterns, and water vapor. Given that Sierra Waves are dependent upon many variables their formation is unpredictable.

High flying weather. When you see people towing their gliders up highway 395, and paraflyers are madly driving up dirt roads, getting as high as they can in the mountains.

Die fliegenden Untertassen! Ich liebe solche Wolken, in Patagonien oder NZ sieht man die öfter mal, weil da der Wind so pfeift:-)

These clouds famously form over Mount Shasta, which has led to all kind of stories.
