I like how this is a real phenomenon and the camera takes nice, clear, non shaky or distorted video.

Oh. My. God. SUNLIGHT THROUGH A CLOUD! Ahhhhhhhh, we're doomed!

Is anyone checking our satellites? They may be using our satellites against us.

Unless that upper ring of light disconnected from the cloud and took off in a different direction at ridiculous (or ludicrous) speed, I'd day there is nothing to see here.

Refraction, how does it work?
2012-11-05 06:53:14 PM  
i gotta admit, that's actually a gorgeous effect. wonder how it happened.

Do a GIS on "lenticular cloud." You're welcome.

I saw this on Youtube when it was titled:

buttery_shame_cave: i gotta admit, that's actually a gorgeous effect. wonder how it happened.

According to those "in the know" there's absolutely no reason to look at this, no matter what sort of questions about meteorological phenomena it may inspire nor how beautiful it may be?

Just stop looking at it already!

Ianman: Refraction, how does it work?

Refraction through a lenticular cloud. It's nice and pretty.

That is a reflection from a streetlight off of a UFO, so yeah, its a streetlight.

Everyone knows lenticular clouds are formed by spacecraft when they enter earth's atmosphere.

It's just a giant flying jellyfish. Nothing to see here.

Used to live near a mountainous region so lenticular clouds were a fairly normal occuerence, very beautiful at sunset or rise.

Very Very rarely they would be massive, guessing up to maybe over 100K in diameter.

Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Silly Earflings.

Cloud iridescence, not unheard of, not even all that rare.
2012-11-06 12:17:51 AM  
Definitely clouds. Move along.

Lenticular clouds usually form over mountain ranges where air pressure drops when there's a high wind.

That's sitting at the top of a towering cumulus cloud -- must be a forming anvil with lots of ice crystals at the upper layer as the rising warm air column hit it.

Really old video is not all that old in the viral age...but still old video of natural phenomena...
2012-11-06 07:29:32 AM  
AHHHH!!! it's the mothership!
2012-11-06 08:56:16 AM  
i was getting ready for that cloud to take off at hyper speed.

Despite the claim that this was recorded on Nov 4, I can swear I've seen this exact video posted here at least a year or two ago.

I'm heading for the Tahoe Caves.
