Morning Glory Clouds of the Gulf of Carpentaria

False primary over the Gulf coastline

Morning-Glory-1990.jpg

Preliminary cloud mid-way between Burketown & Borroloola.
The main wave is out to sea over the horizon. (See satellite picture)
This is one of the very first aerial photographs of the Morning Glory. There are none from 1989 as the pilot did not have a camera and as a result the claim to have flown the wave was greeted with some derision.
