    Link: Freaky Cloud Rapidly Changes Shape - I don`t care what this sentence reads because everyone will cry `FAKE` anyway.

    Pretty obvious fake. Theres a very thin layer of plastic above the cam, that is being slightly bent.

    What ever it is it`s not the cloud moving a lot it`s just polarization of the light.

    I think it might be a light on a painted ceiling when the windows are open so the plants move in the wind, or maybe a drop of water on the lens at the right angle that you can`t see it but you can see it making the image of the cloud shimmer, or a vortex behind the clouds. Or it`s an alien ship with faulty cammo.

    Agree with Crabes. It`s clearly Alien`s.

    It is the error correcting code built into the universe trying to fix a problem with the cloud dynamics algorithm.

    looks more like reflected light bouncing off the cloud and the direction of the light is shifting.

    It did look like it (the moving part) was MUCH closer to the camera than the clouds...

    OR the top of a thunderhead is a very strange place...

    I think it looks like it has some kind of electrical charge or magnetic disturbance

    Ice crystals, aligning and realigning their polarities as small lightning bolts are hopping between clouds discharging static electricity. (You can`t see the flashes of lightning because they`re small and because of the bright sunlight.)

    Or, if you prefer, aliens preparing to take over the Earth.

    Ugggh. As the original poster says on YouTube, this video was taken outdoors, poolside, in Singapore. It was not shot through a window. So please refrain from the "it`s a reflection on the glass" comments. >.<

    You see that variety of clouds converging? They`re discharging static electricity as they merge. The ice crystals that are floating between the clouds are changing their orientation as they align and realign with the static charge in the clouds.

    I`ve see this out the windows of a plane; it`s not all that uncommon.

    Gee, maybe tomorrow I will spend a few hrs with a video camera and film the clouds as well and see what happens, maybe there is something interesting going on in the lawn, Wait for it, I will show you later what happens to a pile of dirt.

    Clouds can do a lot of amazing things. I mean, lightening alone is pretty damn amazing.

    Thanks @Squirlz! what you describe can easily explain this video!

    I`ve seen "ball lightining" exactly ONE (1) time in my whole life. There are things which, if you don`t see them WITH YOUR OWN EYES, are impossible to describe with mere words.

    From the Nasa website where it was originally posted;

    Explanation: What`s happening above those clouds? In the past few years, videos have appeared on the web detailing an unusual but little known phenomenon: rapid light changes over clouds. Upon inspection and contemplation, a leading hypothesis for its cause has now emerged. In sum, this hypothesis holds that a lightning discharge in a thundercloud can temporarily change the electric field above the cloud where charged ice crystals were reflecting sunlight. The new electric field quickly re-orients the geometric crystals to a new orientation that reflects sunlight differently. In other words, a lightning discharge can cause a sundog to jump. Soon, the old electric field may be restored, causing the ice crystals to return to their original orientation. To help this curious phenomenon become better studied, sky enthusiasts with similar jumping or dancing sundog videos are encouraged to share them.

    "its called lens flair"

    If it was, which it isn`t, it wouldn`t be spelt like that anyway. Watch much WWE?
