Morning Glory - Spectacular Australian Weather - Australians Never Heard
Spectacular Australian Weather:
Someone described them as "ripples in the atmosphere" in morning glory, giving it its huge size to make it, or simply, "awesome", The spectacular Australian weather. "The most spectacular thing you can see in the sky."
However, while one of the world's richest and most unique meteorological phenomena takes place here in Australia, a few people even know its existence.
It is no wonder that you can only see such weather events a year just after dawn, two months, in one place, and then only if the conditions are just right.
But this strange - and grotesque - weather occurrence, is almost Australian-specific, with a way of predicting the arrival of its very Australians. It can let the local bar know its arrival.
Now, people are gathered in the bar, in the distant northern Queensland settlement of Burton, waiting for morning glory call. And it's way bigger, rare, than you think, another one.
"There are also people who have not climbed Mount Everest in Zarva," said Garrett Russell of the Caburcher Gliding Club, in the southeast of Queensland, to tell news.com.au.
When your head goes one, he says, you feel so small and insignificant "It's like you're the head of a shrimp big whale's mouth."
Morning Glory is different from any other cloud. Fully-equipped, it can be 100 meters wide but can stretch - sometimes almost straight - for a thousand kilometers from one side of Carpentaria to another.
Like a huge rolling pin it stirs and bubbles, and rolls as fast as the car in the sky. Sometimes clouds line up like striped giants to speed stripes or plowed fields in the sky.
"Imagine cotton stretching from one horizon to another and moving in a huge volume in a landscape similar to 40 km / h," Russell said.
Now twice as much as he has done the journey, the glider is dragging, from the country's population south of its desolate north, to be the only place in the world where you can make sure the morning glory will - at some point - appear.
Rare Morning Glory:
He said riding a cloud, high above the sea, you can surf the sky the closest time.
"Some people say they can smell when a person comes in," Mr. Russell said. But it is a true pioneer in this phenomenon of humidity change.
"All the pilots gathered at the pubs of Burton and we came to see how much condensation existed on the fridge in the beer or on our print.
"If they are really blocked by condensation, the humidity is high, the pilots will finish their beer, go home early to rest, get ready to get up before dawn to ride the clouds."Ian Fresser, a tax collector at the Burton Bar, told news.com.au he never had spectacular tires.

"I was lucky to have the top row of buildings and five touches rolling, and they were spectacular.
Local Aboriginal people call it kangólgi and the arrival of the cloud is a good sign that the number of birds will soon prosper.
The Battle of Texas runs Sweers Island fishing resort, next to the coast, and says 30 years from now, he can tell when a man is on the road - it's a creepy experience.
"In the early morning, the sky was very clear except for what the fog on the horizon low on the bank. In 15 minutes it had bigger, had a gap below it within half an hour it was so close to it like a huge cloud At the top of the flat to 3000 feet.
"It's dead or still, then the wind comes up, the air moves up and gives it a rolling cloud of ripples in the atmospheric appearance," Mr. Bennett said.
"It looks like the sky is torn. It obliterates the sun and continues until it slips, then everything returns to normal."The weather forecaster:
The Weather Forecast:
Andrew Bufalino, said the morning glory, also known as Crimson, is consistent in form but only in the early to mid-spring when the two sea breezes meet.
"They are usually about 1-2km in height and can span thousands of kilometers in a long span.
"The frequency of the Chaohua cloud is higher because of the geographical environment of the Gulf region than in other parts of the world."
Two fronts meet the Cape of York and head west of the Gulf of Carpentaria. In the evening, the air passes through the warm air layer beneath the cooling corner and slides, forming a "tank like a raging wave", he says, and then rolls over the entire waters and then disappears on land.
These undercurrents in the sky happen somewhere else, but it is accompanied by clouds that are so rare. Its unique fat sausage shape is due to water vapor rising to form clouds and then evaporating again to the ground.
Mr. Russell says water vapor resembles the fires of forest fires and the perfect lines from the earth to the clouds are inhaled.
But his consistent view is from the high, chasing the clouds, riding the waves, and then between them in the "sink" dipped. He flew all the way up and down for two hours or more with seven silenced giants spanning thousands of feet below dangerous waters to launch their own way.
"You fly a very bad environment because the bay area is famous for sharks and crocodiles so it's a pretty big moment when you turn your engine off and fly parallel to the forefront of cloud computing.
"They are as smooth as silk," he said. "I'm online when I was young. If you're flying at full speed, with the clouds of your side, sometimes you might have a wing dipped in the cloud that reminds me when you see a surfer sticking your hand out and By reducing the wave.
"You ride the energy."
But Mr. Russell also does not recommend flying through a fluid mass like the glory.
"I do not know who is reckless enough to ride into the cloud because it will be very turbulent," he said, like a tornado level.
Back to the solid earth, Bennett wonders why not to do to tell the phenomenon of the people.
"Lonely Planet describes it as the most spectacular thing you can see in addition to the total solar eclipse in the sky, and most Australians have never heard of it. If it is promoted normally it will bring a lot of tourism to the area."
At the same time, in the pub, pilots sporadic care of beer, careful study of condensation. wondering whether it indicates the world's most bizarre arrival of cloud computing.
