Lenticular Clouds Above Washington (http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap090203.html). I know, not a typical astronomy Q (looking for an A), but I'm intrigued, and if it is 'our' Tim, kudos to him.

Not really ... I still don't know if it's 'our' Tim Thompson! :p

No, it's not me, but the coincidence is interesting. I have a lot of close family living in the Seattle area, so I hang around Mt. Ranier quite a bit. Curious.

Thanks Tim.

How often do you see clouds as spectacular as those in the APOD?
