Just In Time...
The happy snapper, a photographer for Niwa, captured the shot while sitting in the backyard of his suburban Paparangi home late on Sunday afternoon.
"I was just in the right place at the right time. It was a fluke, just one of those things," he said.
MetService meteorologist Ross Marsden confirmed the discovery was genuine.
He said the shapes and forms of the cloud were the result of the light winds from variable directions which were at the cirrus cloud level (about 10,000 metres) when the photo was taken.
