Never saw before such an odd circular formation.





Some said this is only a supercell, but here's what the locals weathermen said:

"It would appear that it's about a "positive local temperature anomaly", probably artificial (superheated zone, factory, etc..) since this cloud formation was at first photographed in a small industrial area before progressing in the countryside."

There's even an impressive video:

Hi I saw one nearly identical in the south of Spain about a week ago, camera had run out of power though so I didn't get a pic.

Sort of looks like the beginnings of a super fat tornado-see how it seems to be spiraling?

How long before someone mentions HAARP?
(oops too late!)

I'm from the mid west and If I saw that cloud I wouldn't be standing around taking pictures of it..

Looks like a funnel cloud. A tornado birther of sorts....

Looks like a funnel/wall cloud that a tornado is trying to spin out of. People in the midwest USA are very familiar with them







A wall cloud (or pedestal cloud) is a large, lowering, and rotating base of a cumulonimbus cloud that potentially forms tornadoes. It is typically beneath the rain-free base (RFB) portion of a deep cumulus cloud (normally cumulonimbus but on rare occasion cumulus congestus), and indicates the area of primary and strongest updraft which condenses into cloud at altitudes lower than that of the ambient cloud base. Most strong tornadoes form from wall clouds.

What we have here is what is referred to as a nipple formation.
It is specific to certain topographical areas of France and the phenomena
can be found in abundance in the north-western region of Brest.
They usually proliferate in pairs and are certainly a handful when encountered,
especially in hot conditions.

Amazing formation. I had never seen anything like it till you posted it. Thanks for sharing


Now how long before someone posts a thread claiming that this is a "cloaked mother-ship" (or the like)? I give it 48 hours tops

It makes one wonder why all these weird clouds have only appeared recently, like within the last few years.
Does anybody remember of any strange clouds like the one in this thread having appeared 10 or more years ago?

10 years ago I remember seeing strange cloud formations a lot in the Spring in SW Ohio - but I wasn't on an internet forum with people from all over the world discussing everyone else's pictures everytime the sky looked funny to them

Very good point. But, A lot of these clouds are getting media attention as well. 10 years ago they weren't.
Internet was around that long ago too.
