Caption: Timelapse footage of sunset illuminating bands of clouds produced by mountain waves. The bands are parallel to the mountain range, and form as air forced over the mountains sets up a standing wave downwind of them. At the crests of the wave it is cold enough for the moisture to condense into clouds. Filmed in the USA.
