HOLE PUNCH CLOUDS
Meteorologists identify the ring of light as an optical effect caused by sunlight hitting what is known as a hole punch cloud. It appears as a circular or oval hole in a thin layer of air containing supercooled water droplets. UFO believers took a strong interest in this strange cloud formation after it appeared over Moscow in 2009.
