    This is a shot of a cloud shaped like perfect little waves. Apparently the shape was caused by Kelvin-Helmholtz instability and not an air wizard like you probably thought. An air wizard! You're a crazy person. Let me guess -- you probably think ocean waves are caused by wat... / Continue →

    Seen here looking all majestic (in my mind there were angels singing), this is the Hulk shaped cloud spotted by Redditor Bartonnen's father. I'm not sure how long the green giant stood up there terrifying locals, but a skywriter missed a golden opportunity to add a 'HULK SMASH... / Continue →

    This is the Imperial Star Destroyer shaped cloud spotted by Redditor EltaninAntenna hovering over Helsinki, Finland. Allegedly it's real, so unless Daisy rises from the grave and argues otherwise in the comments, we'll all have to assume it hasn't been Photoshopped. Or nobody... / Continue →

    Because the majority of Americans are dummies and like to prove it regularly on my Facebook feed (my friends are actually on the lower end of intelligence), 51% of recent survey participants expressed a concern that rain or other inclement weather could affect cloud computing b... / Continue →

    Artist Berndnaut Smilde can create little clouds indoors without the use of a magic weather-controlling device. Unless a thermostat, humidifier, and fog machine count, in which case he does. *cranking thermostat* It's gonna be a scorcher today! Impressive Berndnaut, but I'... / Continue →

    These are some pictures of a "cloud tsunami" that rolled over some oceanfront condos in Panama City beach last week. You more observant readers might notice I put cloud tsunami in quotes thought because there's no such thing. Same goes for the tooth fairy. Trust me, I've bee... / Continue →

    This is Mt. Rainier in Washington state casting its shadow on the clouds above at sunrise. You know, because mountains can do that. Also: be brokeback. It's true, I remember seeing a movie about it once. The Notebook maybe? Mt. Rainier is a volcano, climbing to a height of... / Continue →

    You ever wanted to ride a cloud? Whenever I'm flying through them I always think to myself, "WHAAAAAA, HOLY SHIT HOW AM I DOING THIS?!?!" then I wake up and it all makes sense. But seriously, if I can be real with you for a second: I'm the world's greatest lover and I have t... / Continue →

    Note: Slightly larger (almost a C-cup!) version HERE. Breasts: I practically see them everywhere except where it really counts (right below a lady's collarbone). If my roommate gets drunk enough though he'll mash his together and eat Doritos from between them, so that's somet... / Continue →

    Note: Click HERE for the full-res version, HERE for a worthwhile closeup, HERE for another, equally amazing example. Iridescent rainbow clouds: do they rain gold coins? No, not even the ones with chocolate inside. Disappointing, I know. Also: my life. God, can you tell I'm... / Continue →

    Note: Skip to 1:15 unless you've never seen regular-ass looking clouds before. Although, truthfully, I'm pretty sure I did see a pig and Daffy Duck at the very beginning. This is a video of clouds passing by before a storm in New Brunswick, Canada that somebody decided to fil... / Continue →

    Clouds: sometimes they look like dinosaurs. Other times they might look Yoda, Jabba the Hutt or a viking ship. And even OTHER times, they look like this this. A unique formation some meteorologists want to classify as a new type of cloud, and give a name. Give a name -- h... / Continue →

    The Nuke Lamp from Veneridesign looks like an atomic mushroom cloud. But fear not, Vault Boy (I'm playing New Vegas right now), it's not. It's just a piece of molded plastic. One that costs $1,500. "WHAT THE SHIT?!" Don't ask me bro, I didn't design it -- I'm just a guy on... / Continue →

    ♫ Butterfly in the sky, Jabba is twice as high ♫ Note: High-res version HERE in case you're in the market for the world's crappiest wallpaper. We've already seen Yoda, so it was only a matter of time before somebody got high enough to spot Jabba in cumulus (or is that st... / Continue →

    Two nutjob astrophysicists are claiming a planet 4x the size of Jupiter (the current largest planet in the solar system) might be hiding in the Oort Cloud, a massive (1-light year in circumference) cloud of comets and fart particulate outside Pluto's orbit. Its orbit would b... / Continue →

    Seen here already looking like an addict, a woman "whaffs" a lemon tart. Wait -- what? That's right folks: huffable food. I can see it now. "Yes, we'll like the steak au poivre paired with a full-bodied red spraypaint. And for dessert -- the airplane glue." At first, my m... / Continue →

    A dirigible large enough to lift and deliver heavy equipment and buildings to remote locations? Yes if Australian make-believe company Skylifter has anything to do with it! No if the mole-people finish their network of underground railways first. This 150 meter-wide disc sha... / Continue →

    This is a pizza that looks like a mushroom cloud. No word on whether it set off the smoke detector, but my guess is yes provided they didn't take the batteries out to put in the Geiger counter. So, give it to me straight: if I eat the whole thing you think I'll gain any super... / Continue →

    This is allegedly a cloud shaped like a dinosaur. Personally, I don't see it. What I do see is Kermit about to eat a penis. Which is erotic in it's own amphibious puppetry way, just not dino hot. *clears throat* Moving on. Dinosaur-Shaped Cloud? Photo of the Day [blisstree... / Continue →

    This is a picture of a cloud taken by Michael Longergan. It's a Yoda face-shaped cloud. Granted you could argue it's just a cloud shaped cloud, but you would lose. May the cumulus be with you [badastronomy] Thanks to Phil, who's so good at astronomy Pluto comes when he calls... / Continue →
