These supremely weird, coiled cloud formations were recently captured by a satellite scoping out the Prince Edward Islands. No, not the one in Canada, the ones in the south Indian Ocean. Are they the product of a fast moving craft? The infamous HAARP program? A government weather machine spinning up? Or something else?
The image was taken by the Terra satellite with the MODIS instrument (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) on March 26, 2013. The question on everyone’s mind, though, is what could cause a formation like this? Turns out, it could be this weird thing called a “gravity wave” that sometimes forms between bodies of water and the atmosphere when the conditions are right. Or, it could be, you know.. HAARP.
Here’s an animated image of the same event snapped by a Russian satellite:
