Strange cloud voids

Does any body know why these clouds have central voids. They seem to be coalesing around the middle.

My immediate thought.

According to this witness, nearby observers gasped as the object shot through the clouds at high velocity, leaving a clear blue hole in the cloud layer.[1] The hole reportedly seemed to close itself shortly afterward.

And George Noory will back me up on this!

Really interesting! These are a rare effect where freezing was triggered in a cloud of supercooled droplets.

I was going to say aliens but @chenille provided the answer!

Or it could be one of Cthulhu’s gang coming to cause trouble.

From the Wikipedia article:

“tower controllers joked about an UFO making such a huge trip to O’Hare to return to its home because the airport gate was busy.”

@chenille nailed it I think. One of the images from the fallstreak hole Wikipedia article shows:

which is somewhat similar to the left hole in your first picture. Pretty cool!
