This image was taken at the on the Sidewalk north of the Engineering Center on October 17th around 6:30 pm. I hypothesize that these clouds are lenticular altostratus clouds affected by mountain waves .

The CAPE from Skew-T was measured to be 0 meaning a stable atmosphere. This oddly shaped skew-T seems to determine that clouds most dense between 9500 and 10800 meter ( 312000 to 354000) which is typical for cirrus clouds but looking at the celiometer it can be seen that their were clouds present lower in the atmosphere at levels more likely for lenticular altostratus clouds.
