I call shenanigans. Where`s the other photos/pics of this? No one else thought to film it? And there is something wrong with the sky... it`s shaking, like someone would shake a piece of paper or a drawing.

There must be a battle going on somewhere between two guys with gravity-defying hair.

Could be fake. Can`t tell. regardless I`ve read about those clouds in an article somewhere before. Nothing special about them, other than they`re exceedingly rare.

A UFO, a sign from the heavens... or maybe it`s just a pretty neat cloud?

BEHOLD! The Almighty Cloud of Question. Formed before I looked at my watch. Filmed from a car...and compels all to question it`s existence.

"That`s not a cloud, it`s the eye of God..."

That`s not his eye. It`s his a**hole.

That`s not a cloud, it`s the eye of God watching over a kid while he masturbates. Don`t worry, God is simultaneously killing many kittens.

Truly a beautiful cloud... but I don`t think it`s anything more.

Then again, we could be seeing the effects of Chernobyl.

First of all, it looks fake.

Buuuut, if it`s real, this looks strikingly similar to the third condition of the first Helmholtz Vortex Law, where the vortex forms a closed loop.

If this is the case, it is not an optical effect. The meteorologists need to brush up on their aerodynamics. :- )

I`ve seen this before, it`s some sort of natural phenomena, associatted with tornadoes. I won`t bore you with meteorology, but yeah, not a UFO I`m afraid.

"But meteorologists rejected theories of the supernatural calling it an optical effect.

The Moscow`s weather bureau said several weather fronts had passed through Moscow as the sun shined from the west to cause the effect.

A spokesman for the bureau said: "This is purely an optical effect, although it does look impressive.

"If you look closer, you can see sun rays coming through that cloud. Most likely, the sun was setting when the video was being made."

a spokesman from Moscow`s weather forecasting service said: "Several fronts have been passing through Moscow recently, there was an intrusion of the Arctic air too, the sun was shining from the west – this is how the effect was produced.

Aww, the heading was so misleading, I thought that it was going to be pulsing and changing colours and shooting death rays at buildings and stuff. (Oh well, still pretty cool regardless)
