Spaceship over the 6' dome?

Well...This is a lenticular cloud formed by the Sierra wave. A wave of stable moist air flowing over the Sierra Nevada mountain range reaches an altitude where the temperature at the crest of the wave drops below the dew point and moisture in the air condenses to form lenticular clouds.

Dave, it's unanimous, my kids say your space ship cloud is awesome.
