The Morning Glory cloud is a rare meteorological phenomenon consisting of a low-level atmospheric solitary wave and associated cloud, occasionally observed in different locations around the world. The wave often occurs as an amplitude-ordered series of waves forming bands of roll clouds. The cloud often travels at the rate of 10 to 20 meters per second, sometimes as a single cloud, and sometimes in sets of up to eight clouds.
