Sometimes you look up at the sky and just gasp in wonder!

Many coast residents got to see this event. Phil Wendt got this great photo at Black Point Beach off The Sea Ranch of Cumulus radiatus, or Cloud Sheets. This beautiful cloud show occurred on September 30th.

Beautiful sky indeed! Thanks to Phil for allowing me to share his photo with you here. To see Phil's recent blog posts, and more about these clouds, here is his website:
