People want to see patterns in the world. It is how we evolved Satellite photos of actinoform clouds Title: Benoît Mandelbrot

Although people have observed clouds for tens of thousands of years, one group of clouds long escaped human detection. Not because those clouds were too small to see, but because they were too big. The dawn of the satellite era changed that, revealing a type of cloud that scientists named “actinoform.” The name of these radial, or leaf-shaped, clouds is based on the Greek term for “ray.”

Satellite images separated by 50 years show actinoform clouds over the Pacific Ocean.
