Timelapse footage of mountain wave clouds, marking the flow of the jetstream over the Rocky Mountains. The upward movement of air cause by their passage over the mountains results in a standing wave downwind of them. Where the uppermost portions of the wave are above the dew point, clouds form, appearing stationary as the wind blows through them. Filmed in late afternoon in the autumn in the USA.
