Sandy Driscoll of Silver Lake was heading to the Women’s March in Downtown L.A. on Saturday when she noticed a strange sight in the sky: a large hole in the clouds. What was it? Driscoll found out a few hours later watching the weather segment on KNBC. What Driscoll and many others saw Saturday afternoon is called a fallstreak hole or punch hole cloud.
The Cloud Appreciation Society explains this phenomenon, which is widely believed to be triggered by an aircraft flying through the clouds, causing water droplets to freeze into ice crystals. Thanks to Driscoll for sending in the photos.
