Morning Glory clouds are rare enough but even fewer have been captured in a satellite image.
This Glory cloud was captured in all its, well, glory by a satellite image posted by Weatherzone on Thursday morning.
While photos of this cloud have yet to emerge the satellite image shows the cloud in a long band from south-east of Karumba and Normanton stretching 100km out into the Gulf with a large cloud mass ahead of it.
The Morning Glory moves east towards Mornington Island and Burketown as the cloud system breaks up.
The cloud is a rare phenomenon seen in Australia only in the Gulf and only between August and October.
The long rolling clouds often appear during spring, when cool ocean temperatures meet with warm land temperatures though the phenomenon is not fully understood by meteorologists.
Morning Glories can stretch for up to 1000km and the Gulf of Carpentaria region is one of the few places they can be predicted and observed on a regular basis due to the configuration of land and sea in the area.
