I share in the Photos of the Readers of La Vanguardia this photograph of the incredible Boletus in the sky seen this morning from the Josep Tarradellas Barcelona – El Prat Airport.
As can be seen in the image, the silhouette of the cloud is spectacular, making the shape of a Boletus. Wonders of meteorology.
The so-called mushroom clouds are used to associate with the shape that causes a large explosion, such as volcanic eruptions, although the collision of small celestial bodies, such as meteors or comets, against the Earth, can produce natural mushroom clouds.
Mushroom clouds form as a result of the appearance of a large mass of low-density gases near the ground, creating the so-called Rayleigh-Taylor instability.
The largest mushroom clouds photographed so far were the result of the impact of fragments of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 on the planet Jupiter. In fact, some rose hundreds of kilometers above the cloud layers.
On the other hand, at the meteorological level, cumulonimbus or cumulonimbus are clouds of great vertical development, internally formed by a column of warm and humid air that rises in the form of a rotating spiral.
