Is this a repeat of the spaceship over Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport punching a hole in the sky nearly three years ago, on Nov. 7, 2006?
The photos of strange cloud formations were snapped around 1:00 p.m. on Monday, November 3 in Victoria, Australia, by ABC News audience members.
They show a rare cloud formation that meteorologists call a fallstreak hole, or a hole-punch cloud. They explain them as “large gaps that can appear in certain types of cumulus clouds when water droplets rapidly freeze. The resulting ice crystals then continue to grow and when they become large enough, they start to fall, leaving behind an expanding hole. The pretty rainbow in the middle is the result of the ice crystals refracting the light.”
The question is however: Did the galactics purposely create the effect as a subtle reminder of their presence?
