These tunneling clouds in the skies are… long

Yes, there’s such as thing as a Morning Glory cloud, a special cloud that forms at altitudes of up to two kilometres and stretches for as long as 1,000 kilometers long. It happens when flowing, moist and cool air meets the inversion layer where air temperature atypically increases with height. This photo was taken by photographer Mick Petroff from his airplane near the Gulf of Carpentaria, Australia in 2009. Makes us want to do a Robot Unicorn Attack in the air.
