Is the truth out there? Rare hole punch cloud appears over Illinois?

in news •  2 years ago 


Is the truth out there? Photos have emerged of a bizarre cloud formation over Illinois on December 1, 2017… The strange snapshots have popped up across Twitter and show a bright, unusual hole in the otherwise undisturbed clouds across different parts of the US state. Now curious-minded folks are speculating about the cause of the strange hole punch cloud phenomenon.




Also known as the Fallstreak Hole, this rare amazing and rare cloud formation appears like circular, pentagram or elliptical clearings in the cloud cover, looking like UFOs, sky holes and cloud circles.




Such holes are formed when the water temperature in the clouds is below freezing but the water, in a supercooled state, has not frozen yet due to the lack of ice nucleation. When ice crystals do form, a domino effect is set off due to the Bergeron process, causing the water droplets around the crystals to evaporate: this leaves a large, often circular, hole in the cloud.

Of course, because of their rarity and unusual appearance, fallstreak holes have been mistaken for or attributed to unidentified flying objects. And in this case again! Keep your eyes to the sky to observe such amazing phenomenon.

Wow! I've never seen anything like that. Is this another side effect to geo engineering? Totally bizarre thanks for sharing this!


Wow indeed. I have only seen it in pictures. There are scientific explanations for it - water temperature, freezing state in the cloud, and ice crystals - but one never knows if these formations are natural or geo-engineered. The one thing that is clear, is that we have been witnessing some really strange weather phenomenon in the skies of late.

Heads up.


Very interesting. I wonder if this is HAARP created stuff. Did you ever see the videos of people lighting snow on fire a couple of years ago? It was people in the states it was quite interesting. This reminds me of that.

Hi! I am a robot. I just upvoted you! I found similar content that readers might be interested in:


I have seen the bow wave of a minuteman missile punch a hole in solid overcast in Alaska. A blue hole opened up in front of the missile, seemed magical at the time, until i discussed it with the rocket crew. The punch hole i saw closed up in much less than a minute and was not very wide.


Interesting. Do you have a picture of that?


I will ask around. I did not personally take any pictures I was at work. Maybe someone still has it on a cd somewhere this was in the 1980s but engineers are fastidious creatures so there may be copies available.
