Always shocked that people have the determination, and the time, for something like this.  It makes you wonder about OCD.

 Yes, I like Pina Coladas and getting caught in the rain
I´m not much into romance, I prefer to feel pain
I´ve got to meet you by midnight, in non-Euclidean shape
At the Mountains of Madness, where we´ll plan our escape.

I hope whoever sang The Pina Colada song in the first place spends eternity cleaning Cthulu's toilet with his face. One of the worst ear-wig songs of all time. This is an improvement on a cosmic scale   O0

I see the same thing in the sky every time I try to slip-out to Hooters on the wife.  :knuppel2:

The 'eyes' are a not very uncommon cloud phenomena called 'fallstreak holes'..

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallstreak_hole

A fallstreak hole is a large gap, usually circular or elliptical, that can appear in cirrocumulus or altocumulus clouds.

Such holes are formed when the water temperature in the clouds is below freezing but the water, in a supercooled state, has not frozen yet due to the lack of ice nucleation. When ice crystals do form, a domino effect is set off due to the Bergeron process, causing the water droplets around the crystals to evaporate: this leaves a large, often circular, hole in the cloud.

It is thought that the introduction of large numbers of tiny ice crystals into the cloud layer sets off this domino effect of fusion which creates the hole. The ice crystals can be formed by passing aircraft, which often have a large reduction in pressure behind the wing- or propeller-tips.


As they are mostly formed by aircraft we know them as 'pilot holes'.

Interesting, I'd never heard of that before, so thank you, Pete. O0
