Undulatus asperatus clouds are a breathtaking reminder that the atmosphere is an ocean, complete with waves crashing in the sky.

The wild, wave-like patterns of undulatus asperatus make them look more like storms at sea than cloud formations.  First photographed at Cedar Rapids in Iowa, U.S. in 2006, undulatus asperatus has since been spotted in France, Norway, Salcome in Devon, Middlesbrough and Perthshire in Scotland
