Some were calling it the rapture cloud, but the peculiar formation is called a fallstreak hole; 'Like something out of "Independence Day."

But for those who love, time is eternity."

Cloud formations are fascinating. They show how dynamic the atmosphere is. Sometimes just small local changes can create the most amazing effects.

My favourite clouds are lenticular clouds, because they look just like alien spacecraft!

I too love Lenticular clouds, and they are seen in some of the most awesome places. Here are a couple of my pics. Click to enlarge.

This first one reminds me of a spaceship ~
