UFO Shaped Clouds Appeared in Sky Over Cape Town

Residents of the capital of South Africa were fairly frightened when they saw a fleet of flying objects in the sky over the city. In fact, these objects were not alien spaceships, but lenticular clouds.

This cloudiness is formed rarely. Typically, lenticular clouds appear between two layers of air or on the crest of a wave of air, and the atmosphere should have strong horizontal flows and humidity. In
addition to the "alien" appearance, they are completely independent from wind: "UFO" do not move not depending on the wind force. The ideal settings for this unusual phenomenon formed in Cape Town as the city is surrounded by mountains, and lenticular clouds "love" to hang on the leeward side of mountain ridges and peaks.
