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 Iâ€™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.
