Let’s be real… who doesn’t love a good cloud.

We see them everyday, we sometimes make shapes out of them… and then other times we get rained on from them.

Australia is about to be graced with one of the most beautiful cloud formations we have ever seen. While they only appear once a year, they are worth the wait.

The sad part… hardly any Aussies know it exists.

The unique cloud formations are called Morning Glory (lol)

Basically it’s a rolling mass of clouds that appears just after dawn, for two spring months a year.

They can only been seen in the remote north Queensland settlement of Burketown

It is quite the attraction, locals head to the local pub most mornings to witness the magical display, so of course their social media pics are on point for those two months.

According to the Bureau of Meteorology, the Morning Glory formations are usually about 1-2km high and are about 1,000km wide, they stretch from one side of the Gulf of Carpentaria to the other.
