UFO over Redoubt Volcano, Alaska!

OK, so it's just a really strange cloud, but at first glance.....

very cool.

I watch webcams for Mt St Helens, and captured another really strange cloud image a while back, looks like a big hollow cloud ball.

They are called Lenticular Clouds, and are very neat indeed. Do a google image search on them!

THEY want you to think it's a cloud so they can sneak in among us and suck our brains out of our heads while we are sleeping.
