10 Very Rare Cloud Pictures Showcasing cool pictures of rare clouds caught on camera. Clouds fill the skies above us and are part of our every day lives but often go unnoticed. However, there are some clouds that are so rare that you will be very lucky to see them in your lifetime. This is a list of the top 10 most rarest cloud formations (in no particular order) that for those lucky enough to see them, were caught on camera. For those of you more interested in clouds, we recommend Cloud Book: How to Understand the Skies 1. These rare clouds, sometimes called mother-of-pearl clouds, are 15 - 25km (9 -16 miles) high in the stratosphere and well above tropospheric clouds. They have iridescent colors but are higher and much rarer than ordinary iridescent clouds. Nacreous clouds shine brightly in high altitude sunlight up to two hours after ground level sunset or before dawn. Their unbelievably bright iridescent colors and slow movement relative to any lower clouds make them an unmistakable and unforgettable sight. 2. 3.

The Willies : an unexpected series What is this all about? There is more to come for our little characters ! We would like to make 3 new episodes of their story, each episode being in a different environment : the World of Pirates, a musical, a horror movie, etc... But making quality animated CG is expensive... It takes time, and people ! This is where you come in, where you can get involved, where you can help bringing these characters to life. As we want the series to be quality, we need money to : pay some talented artists to work with us (animators, a composer, and musicians)purchase stuff for them to workrent a spacemake, buy and send you your perks So if in Willies you trust, do not hesitate! De quoi s'agit-il? L’aventure continue pour nos petits personnages ! Mais faire des films d’animations en 3D coûte cher à produire, nécessite du temps et des artistes talentueux ! C’est à ce moment précis que vous intervenez, que vous pouvez vous impliquer et amener ces personnages à la vie. Who are we? Paul Jaulmes Boris Croisé Pirats
