Posted on 02/19/2014 5:40:02 PM PST by SunkenCiv
Explanation: Yes, but how many dark clouds have a multicolored lining? Pictured, behind this darker cloud, is a pileus iridescent cloud, a group of water droplets that have a uniformly similar size and so together diffract different colors of sunlight by different amounts. The above image was taken just before sunset when it was noticed by chance by a photographer in Murambi East, near Odzi Valley and the Mtanda Range of Zimbabwe. Also captured were unusual cloud ripples above the pileus cloud. The formation of a rare pileus cloud capping a common cumulus cloud is an indication that the lower cloud is expanding upward and might well develop into a storm. In this case, however, only a few minutes after the colorful cloud was noticed, it disappeared.

God’s promise to Noah still honored. One of the Great fixed parameters of His universe. Beautiful. And thank you for the picture

I could see some of the UFO people jumping on that in a heart beat. They often take anything they haven’t seen before and fit it to “strange” encounters.
indeed. the first tome I ever saw a lenticular cloud in person so to speak...I was on foot...with my first good digital camera...and ended up walking to a four story parking garage to get a better veiw and a few interesting photos.
the UFO people see ufos and apparitions EVERYWHERE.
there is a flight path here which when viewed form the north might.....obscured my a small mountain
some wacko was interviewed by the local paper..when he assumed that the planes he was seeing at night.....were UFOS...which were entering the POD...of the mountain...for storage..
Fellow humans! This is merely a photo of some water droplets. It is NOT a Battlesaucer from planet Icenar. Return to your foolish human endeavors. That is all.
“Hah! Aliens. Is that one of your Earth jokes?”
If this were a photo of a Battlesaucer from the planet Icenar, it is possible that we, I mean, they would need a human to rule over our, I mean, their human slaves. This leader would require certain “special” talents. Can you play the tuba and cook waffles?
If they’re flying, and you haven’t identified them, they’re UFOs.
I had a guy ask me once if I believe in UFOs. I told him sure, I just don’t believe in extraterrestrials.
Yeah, but in this gravity the waffles come out sort of flat. These people - I mean, we Earthlings - put tree blood on waffles, for the love of Qxdr. Can you believe it?
