Cloud of the Day: Cirrocumulus lacunosus

A rare and fleeting fried-egg formation

Phenomenom of the Day: Vibrating phone wire

There have been occasional reports of a lone icy cable incomprehensibly oscillating on a snowy day. Admin1 observed one such from the roof at his work, and yesterday we saw the same thing outside our house. Despite all the strobing on the video, only one cable is wobbling: the second one from the top. It trembled for at least twelve hours and only stopped when the snow melted. It is anchored to the same building as the static one above, about 30cm lower down, and does not pass over any heat sources. There was no wind, and the birds singing in the background were not sitting on it.

The videos offered at the end share the honour of being derived from a file called MVI5177…

Cloud of the Day: Nimbostratus

Last year in solar panel land shows the effect of the miserable rainy summer on what should have been a bell-shaped curve. It also shows that it was well worth doing

Halo, halo, halo

On the way to the shops, admin2 saw a halo

She texted admin1 who, judging by the clouds, must have photographed it at about the same time

On the way home, the halo had gone but a sundog persisted. Hooray for Cirrus!
