  • Whale spouting

    Right whale’s V-shaped blowing.

    This V-shaped cloud is characteristics of the North Atlantic right whale and is due to the V-shaped blowhole on the top of its head.

    The hot, moist air leaves the lungs very quickly (up to 720 km/h for some species) and condenses on contact with the cold air.

    Right whale spouting can rise as high as 6 to 9 m, but among the smallest species, spouting is generally invisible.
