CAPE TOWN, South Africa — A cool cloud formation over South Africa had folks around the globe buzzing.
Monique Jackson shot this image in Cape Town Sunday.
She described the clouds as being “UFO-like”.
But they have nothing to do with space aliens.
They’re actually a weather phenomenon called “lenticular clouds”.
They form when air flowing along the surface of the earth reaches an obstruction like a mountain or valley, but only if temperatures and air moisture are just right.
Several reports of UFO sightings throughout history have been linked to the disk-like clouds.
