Morning Glory Cloud!

I felt interested to post this!
it's so amazing...and show how mighty is Allah! SubhanaAllah

The Morning Glory cloud is a rare meteorological phenomenon occasionally observed in different locations around the world. The southern part of northern Aussie is the only known location where it can be predicted and observed on a more or less regular basis.
Morning Glory clouds can most often be observed in Burketown in September to mid—November (i really wanna go and watch this!!!), when the chance to see it early in the morning is approximately 40%.

A Morning Glory cloud is a roll cloud that can be up to 1,000 kilometreslong, 1 to 2 kilometres high, often only 100 to 200 metres (330 to 660 ft) above the ground and can move at speeds up to 60 kilometers per hour. Sometimes there is only one cloud, sometimes there are up to eight consecutive roll clouds.

Regardless of the complexity behind the nature of this atmospheric phenomenon, some conclusions have been made about its causes. Through research, one of the main causes of most Morning Glory occurrences is due to the circulations associated with sea breezes that develop over the peninsula and the gulf

On the large scale, Morning Glories are usually associated with frontal systems crossing central Australia and high pressure in northern Australia. Locals have noted that the Morning Glory is likely to occur when the humidity in the area is high, which provides moisture for the cloud to form, and when strong sea breezes have blown the preceding day.

P/s: i love weather studies!!! :)
