A MYSTERIOUS cloud caused a stir over Perth this morning. Several PerthNow readers have woken to a sight described as “out of this world” after spotting a puzzling UFO-shaped cloud in the sky. The unusual cloud formation even had experts baffled, with the Bureau of Meteorology taking some time to investigate what the strange phenomenon may be.







Anyone fearing an alien invasion can now have their minds put at rest as experts at the Bureau of Meteorology has confirmed their original suspicions are true – the strange phenomenon sighted in Perth skies this morning was in fact a Fallstreak Cloud.


According to the bureau’s Neil Bennett, the cloud – which was sitting high above Perth Airport – contained extremely cold water particles. As air crafts flew through the cloud, the particles in their jet exhausted caused this extremely cold water to instantly freeze. The newly frozen ice crystals inside the cloud became a lot heavier then the cloud itself. As a result, the heavier ice crystals fell through the cloud, leaving an usual hole – just like the one Perth locals reported seeing this morning. A fallstreak hole is a cloud formation that gives the appearance of strange holes in the sky’s cloud layer.

Yeah they pop up every now and then.

I expect a few YouTube channels will make their case for it being interdimensional goats from space, but yeah it's an explainable phenomenon.

Well it's the first one I've read about in Australia, not saying there hasn't been any spotted here but I think it suggests the rarity of them.

Another name is a hole punch cloud.

Why so round! If its caused by planes why doesnt it appear as a streak?

My guess is its caused by some kind of RF device.

They are obviously desensitizing us to seeing things that look like spaceships.

At a glance - it reminds me of cavitation to use a maritime equivalent.

I am yet to read it in full, but good ref.


Ed: It needs to be trimmed to interesting size.

But yeah ... canal clouds .
