392 items
An amazing sky taken off the deck of a rental home in Hanmer, NZ.

NASA wrote me and asked if they could use this photo as their Astronomy Picture of the Day. I naturally said YES!!!! Here's the link: apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap130227.html They said they get about a million views a day...

Now it seems that the name will be Asperitas!!!

Maybe it is an Undulatus cloud? See asperatus in wikipedia or
