Spectacular mammatus clouds were spotted above a city in northwest China.

The rare scene, filmed in Ili Kazakh Autonomous Prefecture in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, shows the pouch-like clouds hanging in the sky.

Mammatus clouds are also known as breast clouds.

It's a cellular pattern of pouches hanging underneath the base of a cloud, which associates with hails and thunderstorms. The video was provided by local media with permission.
