Over the past year the world has experienced unprecedented anomalies and strange phenomena in the skies and it seems that it continue to increase both in frequency and intensity.
Here is a small compilation of unusual sky phenomena captured around the world the past few days.
On December 1, 2017 another weird sky phenomenon has been captured over Illinois. The image original posted on Twitter shows a colorful streak of light in the middle of circular gap in the cloud formation. The rare phenomenon is a so-called fall-streak hole.
One day earlier we received an image taken by a reader in New Zealand, thanks, showing what looks like a glowing ball of light or second sun in the sky. Maybe the phenomenon is just lens flare or is it indeed something what we cannot explain?
Meanwhile onlookers captured a strange sky phenomenon in Chiang Mai province, northern Thailand. The phenomenon is known as a circumhorizontal arc. See also the video.
And what looks like three suns appeared in the sky over China. Two small colored patches, or ‘phantom suns’, can be seen positioned at the left and right side of the actual sun in the sky. Such phenomenon is known as ‘sun dog’ and is an optical illusion. See also the video.
