BILLINGS — Known as a "Horseshoe Cloud", conditions have to be just right for them to form.

Sarah Tabor is an earth science teacher in Belgrade, MT who had the presence to shoot some pictures in the few minutes this cloud was visible between Livingston and Bozeman on Sunday, Nov. 14.

A combination of upper winds, a column of rising air, and enough moisture combined to create this spinning cloud.
