I think this second video is far stranger / convincing than the first one presented in the OP . I look at the first video and think reflection and
then look at the second and think not reflection. In the second video the anomaly seems to follow the edge of the cloud without crossing it but in the
first video its all over the place. This is a tough one to call.
Either way i dont think its the clouds moving around as it looks to much like a light distortion of some kind. Hot rising air or changing air density
can bend light so maybe this is a kind of mirage?
Not sure why its posted in the UFO and Aliens forum though. The idea that just because its an anomaly in the sky it might be aliens seems a little bit

Could it be the clouds are so thick and high there is lightning above the clouds? I remember flying on a plane and at times when it stormed seeing
lightning actually above the clouds...? Have no idea.....still speculating never the less.
Interesting video although I can't get to it being anything alien, "could" be something unidentified flying through the clouds I suppose. It has a
strange aurora effect about it. Almost looks like some kind of shockwave or electrical disturbance. Also is it possible that a strong wind shear would
cause that effect? Could it be an odd optical effect due to some unusual atmospheric lensing? Someone mentioned sprites in a post below, this could be
the visible effect from the cloud side of sprite creation only observable from very specific angles to the sun and clouds...
Common denominators of the two videos: large thunderhead with no top shear, viewed from a rearward angle, sun on near opposite side of cloud,
Indonesia... what is it about that place, eh?

I would have to say that after looking at your video, as strange and unusual as it looks it can be explained. The cloud (darker one that you see in
the video) is a "Thunder" cloud. The chances are that you are witnessing a phenomena known as "spites" and "Jets". I was always under the
impression that these are only viewable from space, so it may be worth sending your video to Nat Geo. These "Sprites" and "Jets" are released
hundreds of miles into the upper atmosphere directly after a lightning strike. Was there thunder around at the time of this?
Call me crazy but it looks almost like if something was trying to use the cloud as cover but it didn´t work or the machine they used malfunctioned...
Very weird indeed. Something huge is going to happen. Soon...
The erratic cloud movements in the OP's video may be being triggered by blue jets. The cloud molecules could be trapped in some kind of energy vortex
(just a guess) and suddenly shift as energy buildup is released. Only thing is we wouldn't actually be able to see the jets because they are almost
impossible to see at night let alone daytime.
Just for reference another sprites/jets video:
