Photographs by Fedor Yurchikhin depict clouds of unimaginable shapes and colors. It's 10 km to 12 km above ground so welcome to heaven!

Is it snake dancing? It's just what happens when at different heights wind blows in different directions. Some people may see birds here so it's all relative. 2007.

It seems like an auto race is about to get started! 2007.

      Nothing even remotely crazy about these clouds. What we see here are typical anvils, various kinds of clouds (cirrocumulus, altocumulus etc), meteorological eddies (the spirals) and so on. And the regular aircraft contrail (with it’s sharp shadow on the cloud cover below), of course. The “pancakes” look pretty awesome, I must say, but that’s not uncommon either, the photo is taken over a chain of mountaineous islands sporting lenticular clouds over them (they usually do).

    The one with the curls reminds me of Van Gogh’s Starry Night.

    Well those clouds could very well be at 10-12km high, but please mention the fact, that they were photographed from the ISS.

    Normal commercial airplanes fly at 12km.
