    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)

    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. A spokesman for the weather 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.

    As long it`s only in Moscow and those things are not occuring anywhere else it`s prolly just a weird cloud.

    Or maybe it`s a sign from the heavens:

    "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."

    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.

    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. :- )

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