Morning Glory

The Morning Glory Cloud was described by the Lonely Planet guide as:“the next most spectacular thing to see in the sky after a full solar eclipse”.

It happens around September and October.  Burketown (Gulf of Carpentaria,
Queensland, Australia)  is the best place to view it.

Baddog Productions has just finished a documentary on the morning glory titled “Secrets of a Strange Cloud” which will be airing on SBS Television.

This video was filmed in 2009 when the East coast of Australia was hard hit by
extraordinary duststorms. Whilst this was happening we were getting the most
amazing Morning Glory Clouds in Burketown.
