Lenticular clouds

Lenticular or lenticular clouds are considered a rare natural phenomenon, especially in those areas where there are no mountains. They are formed between the two layers of air. Their appearance is usually associated with the approaching atmospheric front. They also indicate that large air moisture content. Often lenticular clouds hovering at one point and do not move, no matter how strong the wind was not.
