Wheel in the Sky....

Rare Cloud Formation
We spotted this Cloud formation on our way home from Platteville.

I can't remember where I read it, but this type of "spoke wheel" formation is rare and wonderful to behold. Pictures don't quite do it justice, (I had to kinda splice the photos together to catch it). It actually spread across the entire sky from East to West but I couldn't get a good shot of it shooting into the sun. 

The spectacle lasted only the better part of a quarter hour before it blew apart, but it was glorious in it's passing!
