September, 27, 2020 by

Cirrus clouds are made up completely of ice crystals, which provides their white colour and form in a wide range of shapes and sizes.

Here is a work in progress image of the cirrus clouds that are in development currently.

This cloud can form at any altitude between 16,500 and 45,000 ft above sea level.
