Good god, clouds are awesome. Lenticular clouds are stationary lens-shaped clouds that form at high altitudes, normally aligned at right-angles to the wind direction. They can be alto-, strato- or cirrocumulus standing lenticular. (I think these are CCSL). Where stable moist air flows over a mountain or a range of mountains, a series of large-scale standing waves may form on the downwind side (like our Chinook winds.)
