Searching for flying saucer lookalike clouds, this one really impress me by its perfect classic flying saucer shape, partially hidden by cloud and for the wonderful iridescent colors.

I see a hand about to throw a frisbee in a tricky way?

It looks like a beautiful shot of ice crystals. What a shot it is too! It's amazing what decent optics or even good sunglasses can make sharp and clear sometimes, isn't it? So well defined in the angle too.... Nice!

eta: I found this one instead. Not as good as the one I was originally looking for but still ties in with the OP's theme.

Well, it really does look like a UFO. Somewhere in the back of my mind I always wonder if they are and just cloaked...

As an amazing picture as that is... And it is, Im thinking of copying and putting on my desktop wallpaper.... It really doesnt belong here in the Alien/UFO forum. Maybe if this thread were one that points out many objects that get mistaken for a UFO.

Agreed. 99% of threads in the UFO forum are not UFO's, and this one most definitely is not of a UFO either. Wrong forum.

Even though Im a skeptic. I lurk here more than anywhere else in the hopes I see something I cant explain.

Call me idealistic.

There is a scientific explanation to why they look like that. They are called lenticular clouds.


Lenticular clouds (Altocumulus lenticularis) are stationary lens-shaped clouds that form at high altitudes, normally in perpendicular alignment to the wind direction. Lenticular clouds can be separated into altocumulus standing lenticularis (ACSL), stratocumulus standing lenticular (SCSL), and cirrocumulus standing lenticular (CCSL). Due to their shape, they have been offered as an explanation for some Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) sightings.

Shameful plug. Minus 1


Cloud being misconstrued as a ship despite all evidence. Minus 2

Nice one!

Here are some others with almost perfect lenticular shapes:







The one I've posted in my first post here is not a lenticular cloud, but rather an iridescent pileus cloud, also called a cap cloud.
These smooth, round clouds form on top of a puffy cumulus cloud when it rises into higher, colder air.

The pileus cloud is made up of uniformly sized water droplets that diffract sunlight, creating a rainbow of colors. Usually, the effect is outshone by the brightness of the sun, but in some photos, the darker cloud is helpfully blocking the glare to reveal the spectrum of light behind.

Calling all scientists to please explain why that cloud looks so much like a Flying saucer. Not saying it is, I just want the scientific perspective as to why the shape behind resembles something it couldn't be as they dont exist.
I have recently seen a lot of clouds in this shape so there must be a logical scientific explanation.
