The Skypunch Phenomenon

 

skypunch

Skypunch is a rare meteorological phenomenon. People often blame it on UFO’s, however, scientists have found that this phenomenon occurs when ice crystals form above high-altitude cirro-cumulo-stratus clouds, then the crystals fall downward punching a hole in the cloud cover. – That’s their story and it looks like they are sticking to it. At least they didn’t say it was swamp gas, right? Natural phenomenon or not… it’s pretty cool looking.
