morning glory clouds?

Here's something weird.
It's another picture from Astronomy Picture Of the Day (APOD) and it shows some unusual cloud constellations observed in Australia. They can't really explain how the appeared (I think some clouds seen in Bavaria sometimes have similar, although not as pregnant, shapes. And we learned in physics how they were formed. That doesn't seem to apply here.
If you have any idea, join the discussion on APOD ;-)

Besides, I think the name is hillarious! ;-)

  1. Omg that is the strangest, weirdest, beautiful thing that i have ever seen its so unusual i have not a clue how they formed this way maybe as they were all together that begin to seperate and the wind shifted and they all just had this reaction to it and there you have the most phenomonon thing ever
