I was driving back to Lexington, from Ashland, yesterday when I noticed a very strange looking cloud.

Being the curious dude that I am I took photos and searched the inter-webs in search for an answer; especially since there was an earthquake just south of our location that day and I’ve heard of strange cloud formations being associated with earthquakes.

Turns out that these types of clouds are referred to as a fallstreak hole, also known as a hole punch cloud, punch hole cloud, skypunch, canal cloud or cloud hole.

Apparently, they are rare and are often attributed to UFO or HARRP activity. Either way – it was fun to look at and learn more about.

If you have seen a fallstreak hole cloud, or have a photo to share please leave a comment below!
