Really cool cloud phenomena at the top of Mount Fuji

I would like to see this with my own eyes: beautiful lenticular clouds surrounding mount Fuji in Japan.

Lenticular clouds can appear due to convection (hot air bubbles rises) or due to turbulence (small irregular movements in the air) in a layer of the atmosphere. The lenticular cloud consists of several separate clouds. These clouds appear in layers where the air is rising and get separated by layers between where the air is sinking.

They often shows up surrounding mountains like this. When the wind blows over a mountain, the air can be moving in waves for several kilometers afterwards. In the tops of these waves, the lenticular clouds are created.

Quite fascinating phenomena, isn’t it?
