These are some of the clouds that formed east of the Troutdale, Oragon towards the evening. They are the
kind of cloud that is sometimes mistake for UFOs. ( 2001.8 )
Utah , March 2001 Cloud covered
These Photos are very interesting, a near perfect UFO shaped cloud?
or a UFO hiding itself in a artificial cloud?
Photos were taken with a digital camera. These photos were sent to us
We were house hunting...the picture was taken from Saratoga Springs
which is on the West side of Utah Lake in Lehi, so I think, I think it was in-between Timp. Mt. and the Mt. where squaw peak
One thing....your right if this is a cloud covered UFO it is enormous.
UUFOH NOTE: This is probably a cloud formation though a very odd one.
This example was seen over Snowdonia in July, 1997. High pressure over
Scotland, thundery low in SW England. Conditions were hot and breezy - and a bit
if you have any information about these pictures please contact us.
|so is this a UFO or is it just a cloud formation?
|Is this possible!!?

Date: Fri, 8 Dec 2000 Subject: Comments on "hole in cloud"
From: Ashiar Samone Jean.
Regarding the so-called, "hole
in cloud", you and your readers may be interested in knowing that at a conference in Santa Fe in September (2000), one of
the speakers, possibly Robert Dean, showed slides of UFOs forming clouds to disguise themselves inside them. Amazingly enough,
the trail underneath is a part of the process. He showed slide after slide, where people had caught the entire process in
photographs and on video. He also showed the most famous photograph, the one over Mt. Shasta. It has been made into a poster/print.
But, there are many others. And now it looks like we can add these photos to the list!
"UFO" Clouds -
properly known as Stratocumulus or Altocumulus Lenticularis, depending on height. They are not uncommon in Scotland but are less frequently seen further south. They vary from very to extremely photogenic! This page covers
a few Welsh examples, followed by the results of a "lenticular cloud-chase" in Scotland way back in 1990.
October 1990, Glen Lyon to Loch Tay, Scottish Highlands. An afternoon off work and a new fall of snow
on the tops prompted an explore, so I drove up Glen Lyon, thinking to cross over the Ben Lawers range and down to Loch Tay.
Snow on the road but I had a landrover so no worries....Beautiful cirrus, looking northwards across Glwn Lyon from the pass.Things
getting more promising as I cross the pass...This was the scene that greeted me as I reached the Ben Lawers car-park! It's
as though the thing is bearing down, to collide with the mountain and obliterate it. But it just hung about where it was.
I stayed at the car-park for ages and then towards sunset I set off
down the steep lane to join the Killin-Aberfeldy road that runs along the northwestern shore of Loch Tay. The clouds persisted so that I was able to stop and get this pic.
This day happened
nearly 10 years before I took up severe weather photography in a full-on way. Just a gentle day out in the hills with my camera.
I was still scared stiff of thunderstorms back then but I was only in my late twenties. Perhaps becoming "middle-aged" mellows
one's fears - or perhaps new fears generated by human activity occupy the mind to an ever greater extent, so that simple,
uncontrollable atmospheric violence becomes a thing to behold and wonder at. There is a strange comfort in watching the clouds
and considering the fact that such processes have gone on for thousands of millions of years in the past - and will go on
for for many more millennia, with a perfect disregard of human arrogance.
