All eyes were trained on the sky over Alabama last week as eerie wave clouds rolled over the state.
The surreal event was captured on camera phones last Friday afternoon in Birmingham and is called a Kelvin–Helmholtz instability.
It normally occurs in regions with vast plains where winds quickly change speed creating turbulence. A fast-moving, lighter density cloud slides on top of a slower, thicker layer, dragging out the surface and creating the wave effect.

|Haul ... man was caught with nearly £300,000 worth of cocaine in his belly|
A BRITISH man has been caught trying to smuggle a two-kilo haul of cocaine out of Brazil — in his stomach.
The 44-year-old was arrested at Congonhas airport in Sao Paulo as he attempted to catch a flight to Senegal, in West Africa.
X-rays of the man's belly showed 89 capsules of the class A drug — each weighing just under an ounce.
The man, whose name has not been released, was held as he tried to check-in when cops noticed irregularities on his passport.
Police Chief Jose Alonso said the man held a British and Nigerian passport and information on the two did not match.
The enormous stash of cocaine was removed from his stomach and intestines hours later in hospital after he was arrested last Thursday.
Police said the haul was worth £286,000 and was destined for sale in Europe.
The man could now face up to 15 years in prison for drug smuggling.

|Sporting ... Bristol University netball students strip off for calendar|
A GAME netball team has stripped off to raise money for their club.
The ballsy Bristol University students posed in a series of saucy shots for a 2012 calendar.
The girls are hoping to net enough cash to fund their team for the next year.
And the sporting students' snaps have already proved hugely popular online after a Facebook group promoting the calendar, which is out tomorrow, received thousands of hits.
Fundraising officer Maddie McKenzie said: "The response we've had has been absolutely amazing."
