Australia is home to one of the world’s rarest meteorological phenomena, which most people have never heard of.

Known as morning glory clouds, these long bands of cigar-shaped formations can stretch up to 1,000 kilometres (621 miles) in length.

And they can only be seen reliably in one place in the world – Australia’s Gulf Country township around the Gulf of Carpentaria in northwestern Queensland, each Southern Hemisphere spring (from September to November).
