Animated clouds!


Huge rain cloud seen in the eastern sky from in front of Nijo Castle!

It looks like an animated cloud.


To my eyes, it looked like a big bird spreading its wings over the main cloud.

It was just a clear day in Kyoto, so I was very impressed by these fuzzy clouds.


When I checked the rain cloud radar, I found that it was a huge guerrilla cloud. The timing was about 15 minutes before the radar image, so it must have been moving north around Otsu City.

If its course had shifted even a little to the west, Kyoto City might have been hit by a heavy downpour.
