"It's looks like a newborn baby. It's a sign that people will get pregnant in this cold weather "
"Gender reveal....Its a boy!!!! "
"Am I the only one seeing the man that is walking up the mountain underneath the blue? He has his back turned looks like he is wearing a robe..."

This particular phenomenon is called a fallstreak hole which rarely occurs in nature. Fallstreak holes are also known as a cavum, hole punch cloud, punch hole cloud, skypunch, cloud canal or cloud hole.
Due to the rare nature of these events some people have mistaken them for UFOs in the past. Fallstreak holes form when the temperature in the clouds falls below freezing which creates ice crystals and causes water droplets to evaporate.
