Cape Cod Mackerel Sky

The beautiful sky-cloud formation which is composed of thousands of small clouds, slightly overlapping, and very high up, is often called a “mackerel sky” from its fancied pattern resemblance to the scales on the back of the mackerel.

The weather experts call these clouds cirrocumuli or altocumuli. Many persons believe that they presage rain, though they are also seen at times following a storm. They are most beautiful when the rising or setting sun scatters its bright light among them and transforms them from gray and white to red, pink, and gold.
