A mysterious cloud appeared over the town of Uruapan in the western Mexican state of Michoacan earlier this month, and its shape had residents debating whether it was a sign from above.
From the Daily Mail:
One, named ‘Anastacisa’, wrote: ‘This looks like a palm of a hand stretching down with the fingers touching. It is like it is a Holy hand’ while another, going by the name ‘Orlisz’, added: ‘There looks like there is a Holy light shining on it, like a halo.’
Online viewer ‘Nosoypersona’ said: ‘Poor Mexico! It looks like it is being invaded by aliens.’
Another, named ‘Lucadifassio’ agreed: ‘You can see clearly a UFO. It is like Independence Day 3. The Mexican version.’
One observer recorded video of the cloud:
The Daily Mail reports that experts said they believe the phenomenon is a ‘vapor mark’ which is around a kilometer in length. The clouds could be the start of a number of cloud formations, they added. One said, “The name for this rare type of cloud is lenticular cloud, this is a stationary lens-shaped cloud that forms in the troposphere, normally in perpendicular alignment to the wind direction.”
Speaking of lenticular clouds, skiers in Sweden were treated to a breathtaking sight last week when massive “UFO clouds” hovered over ski resorts Åre and Duved.
Lenticular clouds form when air is forced to rise when it comes in contact with a natural or man-made objects like mountains or skyscrapers. When the air cools, it forms amazing shapes.
