Editor’s Note: No matter what your opinion of the deadly, record-setting rain over Texas recently or what type of clouds these actually are or what caused them, you’ve gotta admit they really do stand out and are not even the same color as the rest of the clouds in the sky…
Photos posted online on May 26 show rare lenticular clouds seen over Robertson and Leon Counties in eastern Texas on Monday, May 25, following severe weather that hit Texas and Oklahoma causing flooding, devastation, and deaths.
Despite efforts by meteorologists to provide scientific explanation of the clouds, the appearance sparked conspiracy theories about UFOs, chemtrails, and weather manipulation experiments by NORAD and HAARP.
The flying saucer-like shape of the cloud sparked UFO rumors which were quickly dispelled by local meteorologists who explained the nature of lenticular clouds.
According to meteorologists, lenticular clouds are common in mountainous regions but rare in the plains. The rarity of lenticular clouds in the plains could explain why the appearance in Texas on Monday caused a stir on social media.
