A couple of days ago, I was out playing catch with the dogs when I noticed some interesting cloud formations. Much to their chagrin, I darted inside to fetch my camera.
I was particularly interested in one cloud.
These were lenticular (lens-shaped) cloud formations, and ones like that above are often referred to as “flying saucers”
It had already begun to lose its shape by the time I got back with the camera, but you could still see why they might be taken for UFOs. If you had a really lively imagination, that is.
Sure enough, that very same cloud featured on the evening news, with comments like, “Yup, sure does look like a flying saucer, all right!” Maybe it does and maybe it doesn’t, but it makes an unusual picture, anyway.
