Has anyone got any idea what caused this formation. There were two clouds/holes quite a distance apart but at the same time this morning. Both were almost perfect circles with other circular clouds within it. Never seen this before.

It kinda looks like something with a cloaking device in effect. Interesting nonetheless.

You don't happen to have any more photos, do you?

That's a very interesting picture.
Can I ask what the building is directly under the circle?

It's a punch hole cloud, you can see some here, or just google punch hole clouds and search images.

I have seen pictures of clouds like this before, and I believe they are considered to be formed naturally under certain conditions. Still, it is an interesting photo, Thanks for posting.

Just a questiom, it states that they are"believed" to have been made by planes passing through thin layers of cloud but if that was true. Wouldn't we be seeing a hell of a lot of these clouds on a daily basis?

or do we? Cause I've enver seen one and I live quite close to an airport.

I think that building is just a reflection from a computer. I am ina gov bullding so nothing else around. No planes go that close to our building either.

David291, they may be from special craft if that is the real case and they arent hole punch clouds...

Hm? Are they not?

"A fallstreak hole, also known as a hole punch cloud, punch hole cloud, canal cloud or cloud hole,"

en.wikipedia.org...

but yeah, believed to have been from a passing"jet" erm, we would see more of them, surely?
edit on 13/9/11 by David291 because: (no reason given)

There's an interesting site here that explains how hole punch, or to give them their proper name "fallstreak clouds" are formed, both naturally and by aircraft contrails.
