Cloud shadow
« on: August 31, 2018, 10:34:44 PM »
I've attached one picture of a cloud shadow I saw shortly after sunset tonight.  Others I called who were perhaps 10 miles north or south of my position were unable to see it.  If I can transfer another picture I'll show a slightly different effect, but basically the same.

While I've seen mountain shadows in the Western US, there is nothing to my west that could cast a shadow except a high cloud, perhaps a thunderstorm.

I just thought it was neat, and something I've never seen quite so dramatically displayed before.

Nice pic.
They aren't frequent but I do see those a lot down here.
Maybe it has something to do with location being as you're in Wisconsin and I'm Florida.
Here's one I took.
