What’s The Story Morning Glory?

I love the fact that these strange phenomenal tubular atmospheric condensations are called Morning Glory clouds! The name reminded me of the delicious stir-fried tubular vegetables, albeit tangled, that are so popular here.

Even better, their formation (these clouds appear every autumn over Burketown, Queensland, Australia) remains clouded in mystery. Ta da (had to get that remark in)!! There’s obviously a meteorological explanation, but as yet no scientist has come up with a reasonable one.
