Strange “Halo” Cloud Hangs Over Moscow (Photo/Video)

A very strange cloud formation was photographed above Moscow last week.  The cloud looked almost like the alien invasion scenes from the movie “Independence Day”.  Read more on this strange halo cloud and see video below.

An odd luminous ring-shaped cloud was videotaped hovering over Moscow this past week.

Many people in Moscow wondered if the halo cloud was supernatural or even aliens. But meteorologists rejected these theories and explained the cloud formation.

“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,” said a local meteorologist.

“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,” he added.

As for pollution causing this rare cloud formation, meteorologists say it’s not true.

“The phenomenon has nothing to do with industrial emissions,” said one. “They could not produce such an effect against the background of the current weather conditions.”

“If something happens, there is the smog effect, but it appears only when the weather is quiet for a long time. The wind in Moscow has been quite strong recently.”

It’s an awesome sight, that’s for certain!

Here’s the strange cloud formation on video:
