If you want to know more about Asperatus clouds, you had better watch this extremely gorgeous time-lapse of Asperatus clouds taken by storm-chaser Alex Schueth in Lincoln NE, on July 7 2014

It was only in 2009 when Asperatus clouds were classified by scientists; because they are so rare to be noticed. Being ominous and stormy, such clouds always end up so rapidly and even could not generate a storm actually. Like other kinds of undulating cloud, Asperatus clouds are produced when colliding air masses or turbulent winds quickly form at the bases of the cloud layer into weird formations and shapes. Asperatus clouds often take shape in the plains of the United States and they present their best fancy and swirly pictures especially in the morning or midday hours after a thunderstorm.
