Mammatus clouds

AKA  Mammatocumulus or mammary cloud.

This is what we saw up in the sky last night - wish the pictures were better.  I have NEVER seen clouds like this before - with those directly above us, fast rolling sunlit cumulus clouds the our East and some crashing dark clouds to our West - we spent quite a bit of time cloud watching.
