Concentric circle formation in clouds...
I was sent this interesting cloud formation and here is what they have to say about it:
Just after sunset, on December 22, 2005 about 4:45pm, I was getting ready to let the dogs out into the backyard and noticed the strange contrail formation in the sky. My location is Severn Maryland, and the formation appears to be over I-295 (Baltimore-Washington Parkway), near Ft. Meade. I grabbed my camera. Didn’t know if it would turn out, since it was so dark.
I recently got my film developed and (on CD) opened up the file – the original is dark, the modified (just did an "auto-brighten") is eerie. We live near the flight patterns for BWI Airport and there is often traffic in the patterns. So this could not have been some sort of aerial demonstration. Nor did I hear anything unusual. Strangest of all, there is a TV weather camera nearby, and there was NOTHING on the evening news about the strange clouds. I have seen many strange things in my life; this is one of the weirdest ever!!!
To me, looks like something distrupted the clouds, could have been a supersonic aircraft, meteor or something similar.
