Explanation: What's happening above those clouds? In the past few years, videos have appeared on the web detailing an unusual but little known phenomenon: rapid light changes over clouds. Upon inspection and contemplation, a leading hypothesis for its cause has now emerged. In sum, this hypothesis holds that a lightning discharge in a thundercloud can temporarily change the electric field above the cloud where charged ice crystals were reflecting sunlight. The new electric field quickly re-orients the geometric crystals to a new orientation that reflects sunlight differently. In other words, a lightning discharge can cause a sundog to jump. Soon, the old electric field may be restored, causing the ice crystals to return to their original orientation. To help this curious phenomenon become better studied, sky enthusiasts with similar jumping or dancing sundog videos are encouraged to share them.

It is not just the strange clouds but what is the 'thing' that pops in and out of the screen fluttering about at the following times:
2:30 - 2:48
3:46 - 4:02
4:30 - 4:32
I know there are a bird or two captured but this does not look like a bird.
Could it be dirt on the windshields of the aircraft? - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...

I've seen a few videos of similar phenomenon before.
Very similar, though being viewed from below likely skews their shape. What leads me to believe that these are the same thing is the way that the light seems to "snap" and whip from position to position.
Wonder what it is!

Seems like NASA can pull pretty much anything out of their own ass to cover something up...A little known phenomena ? how long have humans been around? anyways..Id like to think its not natural because I don't believe a word NASA says and never will...
