The Seven Most Stunning Cloud Formations

At their most basic level, clouds are no more than condensed water and/or ice. These fluffy white substances are created when warm air rises, cools, then condenses onto dust particles in the air, forming tiny droplets around each particle. As more and more particles attach together, a cloud forms.

Scientists primarily classify clouds by their altitude, shape and process of creation. Though there are four main cloud categories, cloud formations can be further broken down and described by more specific names, which are derived from Latin terms that describe their qualities.

Stop And Smell The Corpse Flower

Growing in the depths of Sumatran rain forests is what’s known as the Amorphophallus titanium, or corpse flower.

Measuring up to ten feet tall in the wild, this putrid-smelling plant is engineered by nature to attract carrion beetles from miles away to aid in its pollination.
