“The clouds forming over Rye are a type of arcus cloud called a roll cloud. These clouds are in the beginning of formation. Later on in the night the roll clouds form in perfectly straight lines, forming the shape of a series of pipes. Roll clouds generally form from sea breeze or in this case the remains of a cold front from a thunderstorm. During the formation of these clouds, the moon continued to rise in the night sky, casting interesting shadows on the landscape from the roll clouds.” - Christopher Georgia.
