Brazilia: Giant Saucer shaped Clouds

Yesterday as the sun was setting over Brazil, “we saw a Big Show in the sky of Brasília,” reports local resident Leo Caldas. “Giant saucer shaped clouds appeared, and they were filled with iridescent color.”

These are pileus clouds. On warm summer afternoons, cumulus clouds boil upwards, pushing layers of moist air above them even higher where they cool and condense to form cloud caps (‘pileus’).
