Caption: Cirrus cloud. Spiralling cirrus Kelvin-Helmholtz cloud. Its distinct corkscrew pattern is formed by layers of air moving across each other in opposite directions, creating a series of circular air movements in between them. This type of cloud generally forms at high altitude and dissipates rapidly.
