Well-documented pair of gravity waves move over the Memphis metro

A set of gravity waves (click link for a description of gravity waves) trained over the Memphis area between 7:00-8:00 this morning. The waves were visible on radar imagery as well as visually - as a pair of linear cloud features that moved quickly by from north to south at about 1,000 feet.

Below is a short video I took of the waves passing over Bartlett (with narration), as well as several photos submitted by Twitter and Facebook followers.  Thanks to all those who submitted their pics!
