Today’s Image of the Day comes thanks to the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at fair-weather cumulus clouds over Sri Lanka.

Fair-weather cumulus clouds, or cumulus humilis, have round tops and flat bottoms, and typically only last for about 45 minutes.

This image was captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer on board NASA’s Aqua satellite.
