I was in the Eastern Sierra this past weekend too and saw that same series of lenticulars come through. There was a smaller, but equally impressive stack coming up over the crest at the same time that this one was already sitting over the basin. It was one of the best sunsets I've seen at Mono Lake, a place with no shortage of impressive sunsets. I don't want to hijack someone else's thread, but if people are interested I have some photos too.

Paul mentioned that he's also seen lenticulars at Mono Lake in the past. They're pretty common on the east side of the Sierra, for the reasons explained above by yodog. There's even a specific term for it...google "Sierra Wave."

Thanks Garthom

A lot of people were there.  In fact, the parking lot was full.
