My partner took this photograph tonight. I think it's probably just an odd cloud, but I thought some of you might find it interesting, so here you are. Portal to some alien dimension, evaporating UFO...you decide!

I just realized what it reminds me of -- the ghosts swirling out in Ghostbusters.

Or, odd cloud formation that formed due to humidity rising in the atmosphere. I most certainly would not jump to the conclusions you seem to have off the start, OP. This most likely has a very normal and reasonable explanation.

Er, I said in the OP that I thought it was probably a cloud formation.
But it was still an interesting enough image to be worth sharing, I thought.

It might just be the reflection of the moonlight. Something similar happened just a few days ago that I saw. Here's a pic.

Bit ironic you saying "I most certainly would not jump to the conclusions you seem to have off the start, OP" when the OP states they think it is just a cloud, now don't you feel silly jumping to conclusions like that.

As for the pic, definitely just a cloud formation, seen quite a few "circles", they look great when lit up by the moon.

True. Apologies. I just thought the OP was leading a bit with the title is all. What I said not meant to come across as snarky. Sounded better in my head than it came out in text format.

As the other poster mentioned, that's a 'Halo'.
Its caused by ice in the upper atmosphere.
I am not sure if there has been any research into the topic or not, but the frequency of these types of events seems to be increasing as of late. I know that I have seen them here on a regular basis over the last few years, and cannot name a handful of times in my life that I have seem them prior to then. Maybe its a result of climate change, and we can expect to see even more of these as time goes on.

Noctilucent Clouds seem to similarly be increasing in frequency and location, and also are suspected to be the result of changes in our climate.

Very interesting, thanks for the information. It's staggering to think of how complex this world is and how many branches of change can move through it as the result of slightly changing its operating parameters, from terrible droughts to wonders in the sky.

Do you feel this image is related to HAARP, rather than climate change? The link mentions storms, but not unusual astronomical views...

It could be a circular contrail slowly sinking downwards in the air and dissolving. Then the moonlight is putting some light on it.

WOW!!

It's hard to believe no one here has accurately identified what is seen in the photo...

for me, it was instantly obvious that what we are seeing in the image is none other than Santa Claus and his Reindeer gang!

Not recognizing Santa when you see him may earn you a mark in the naughty column!




I have always liked seeing these halo rings in the sky, especially at night and/or around the moon. The daytime, Sun halos are also incredible, but not quite as mystical or mysterious as their night-time counterparts, in my opinion.

Hah, oh well, I was probably getting coal anyway.

So it sounds like people see these all the time, and I've just managed to miss them. Probably due to not wearing my glasses enough. They're beautiful, anyway. And it's easy to imagine how a picture like this, if I'd made up some story to go with it, could have some people convinced, sadly.
