This Strange Phenomenon In Nebraska Is Too Cool For Words

Have you ever looked up at the sky to see clouds that look like bubble wrap, or maybe like water balloons about to burst? They’re known as mammatus clouds, and this is the time of year you’re most likely to see them.

As with a lot of natural phenomena, scientists aren’t entirely sure why or how the mammatus form. The formations are relatively rare and, since they aren’t dangerous, haven’t been studied very extensively.

Mammatus clouds appear all over the world, not just in Nebraska. But like anything else, we think they’re way better in Nebraska. Have you ever captured photos of this interesting natural phenomenon? If so, we would love to see them in the comments section!
