Stratocumulus clouds. Long streaks of strato- cumulus at sunset. This low altitude (500-2,400 metre height) cloud is made up of water and ice particles. It is usually arranged in circular contiguous mounds as a patchwork or in orderly groups, but here prevailing winds have produced elongated streaks of the cloud. Stratocumulus is very common, generally occurring in the northern hemisphere in winter and rarely producing rain.
