Halo Cloud
A strange cloud over Moscow in 2009 allowed millions to witness an ominous ring-shaped cloud that appeared over Moscow’s western district. Scientist from the city’s weather forecast service dispelled fears of extra terrestrials landing in Red Square, saying the event was strictly environmental. “It’s a purely optical effect, even if a spectacular one. You can see really strange things if you watch the clouds regularly,” weather officials told Russia’s Vesti 24. “Several air fronts have passed Moscow recently, including an inflow of cold air from the Arctic, and they combined to produce such a phenomenon.” See the creepy video from this random blog.
