Weather Explainer: What Is a Subtropical Storm?


This image shows a cross-sectional snapshot of a simulated supermassive star going supernova, approximately one day after the star’s interior began expanding outward. The star’s helium core can be seen powering fluid instabilities and the mix of heavy elements throughout the star’s interior.

Undulatus asperatus: Storm Chaser Captures Mesmerizing Time-Lapse of Clouds Rolling Like Ocean Waves
“Undulatus asperatus” is a cloud formation proposed in 2009 that roughly translates to “roughened or agitated waves.” These dark and stormy clouds travel across the sky in ominous waves, but generally dissipate without an a storm forming.
Storm chaser Alex Schueth was recently in the right place at the right time with his DSLR, and managed to capture one of these formations in the mesmerizing time-lapse video seen above. Watch the video:
