這是一位氣象部落客兼攝影師Rogerio Pacheco在這星期前於葡萄牙的Madeira島上拍到,他發表在他的部落格並且描述這朵雲彩就宛如“上帝之手”。

我們告訴了BBC的氣象學家Aisling Creevey並且想了解為何會有這麼壯觀的“火球”撕裂了早晨的天空。

她說:「這種構造的雲其實是相當普遍的,這點或許會使你感到驚訝,但我們通常不會以這樣華麗的方式看到它們。」

而顯現出這種雲層的原因,是因為在低一點的高空時太陽光照映在雲團上面,就像陽光碰觸到更高的雲一樣。

他解釋說:「這些雲層一共含有三層,而且這個火球雲看起來混合了一些雲層,舉例來說,火球黑色的部分出現在“中間的高空”即2400到6100公尺這段高空,又被稱為高層雲。」

事實上,這類型的雲總是在我們的頭上,但是我們通常無法清楚地辨識出相異的灰色陰暗處。Creevey說:「這個火焰雲構造沒有比普通的雲來的複雜,只是恰好在光線被捕捉的時候拍到。」

另外一個來自英國氣象局的氣象學家,Emma Sharples也同意這個看法。她說:「我認為主要是升起的太陽讓這個景象比只有單獨的雲顯示出來的景象更為顯著。我們認為這可能是積雲〔花椰菜狀並且蓬鬆狀〕,相當常見,但是隨著光線的情況而增強了顯示的景色。」

Creevey補充說 :「Pacheco如此幸運得以捕捉到這些影像,因為一般這些雲不會呈現這樣的景色太久,也許只是一兩分鐘。」
