Many Texas Residents went out to their lunch break witnessing holes in the thin layer of cirrocumulus clouds today. Are these UFOs? Nope!
In fact, this is a RARE weather phenomenon called "fallstreak hole". Otherwise referred to as a punch cloud, sky punch, or even jellyfish. These holes are rare because you need the right atmospheric conditions for them to occur.
These clouds are typically circular or elliptical. They are most common among cirrocumulus and altocumulus clouds. Fallstreak holes develop from supercooled water evaporating or freezing in the clouds. Due to how rare these holes are, some people have mistaken them as UFOs.
