Roswell, New Mexico Lenticular Clouds Saturday, March 10, 2018.








Were aliens invading Roswell, New Mexico Saturday afternoon with their space ships? No but the sky was full of Altocumumulus Standing Lenticular Clouds. In the aviation world they are abbreviated as "ACSL" in the comments sections of Metar observations. These clouds signify mountain wave action and severe turbulence. 

My wife and I spent the afternoon shopping in Roswell and what a treat the sky provided. I was hoping that when we got out of a movie we were seeing that the sky would have been blazing with them shaded in pink or reddish hues. Nope not this time. Still beautiful anyway.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
