We covered bizarre cloud formations before,
but there seems to be no end of them… The tsunami-looking fog wave was strange enough, and now these “gateways in the sky” –
circular absence of clouds, with wispy tendrils reaching out of them…

Punch Hole Clouds may appear as a circular or oval holes in a layer of
supercooled clouds; sometimes they assume a form of a perfect circle and persist
for quite a long time,

Spectacular lenticulars in the morning light


rainbow effect

Nacreous clouds

Prepare to get squashed
