Lenticular clouds form on the crests of air waves or between two layers of air. A characteristic feature of these clouds is that they do not move, no matter how strong the wind. The flow of air rushing over the earth’s surface flows around obstacles, and air waves are generated.

Clouds usually hang from the leeward side of mountain ranges, beyond the ridges or, as in our case, above the tops of volcanoes at a height of from two to fifteen kilometers.
