Case File Status: Solved, Misidentified Natural Cloud Formations

Background

The witness submitted the following case to The Black Vault / TBV Investigations on 06/11/2019. The case was assigned to TBV Investigator Jim Kerr for investigation and analysis.

Witness Testimony

Note: this is the only statement from the witness. The witness never replied to the questions I sent by email.

“Clouds moving really soft from early morning 4:30 am. Saw several clouds moving in like a docking station before being released to move with the wind. Also saw several other types of strange things. I have been here for 3 weeks and see something almost everyday. All photos are from the same morning”.

The Evidence

The witness provided 4-photos numbered 1-4 below.

Weather: Historical source from wunderground.com

06/09/2019 at 6:30 am, Catawissa, PA. 61 deg, Dew Point 53 deg, humidity 75%, Wind-calm, Wind Speed 0 mph, Pressure 29.69 in, precipitation 0.0 in, Condition fair.

Astronomy: Historical source from wunderground.com

Sunrise 5.36 am, Sunset 8:40 pm, Civil Twilight rise 5:02 am – set 9:14 pm, Moon – waxing crescent.

Searching the archives of Stellarium (a planetarium software that shows exactly what you see when you look up at night and day time sky), I was able to view exactly what celestial objects were visible to the witness in his sky from their location.

The city of Scranton, PA, was the closest Stellarium view to the city of Catawissa. The image correlates to the weather report for Catawissa, indicating clear skies.

Analysis

Unfortunately, the witness did not respond to my questions sent by email. Based on the weather and Stallerium views for 06/09/2019 at 6:30 am, the sky was clear with no cloud cover. The actual weather for this day is a contradiction to the witness’ photo evidence. It is possible the witness made a mistake regarding the date of this sighting. My analysis is based on the photos and inscription edited into photos 2-4.

The witness stated in essence; the clouds were moving softly from 4:30 am to 8:30 am. The clouds were moving like a docking station before being released to move with the wind. Other strange anomalies were seen as described in the inscription within the photos.

Photo #1

I analyzed this photo by enlarging, changing the lighting and contrast, and observed a typical cloudy day with no anomalies.

Photo #2, Triangle

I analyzed this photo by enlarging, changing the lighting and contrast, and observed a typical cloudy day with no anomalies. The triangle the witness observed was a normal cloud formation. Many people believe triangular-shaped clouds are cloaked UFOs. Since 2011, I have investigated the subject of cloaked cloud craft. While cloaked UFOs are a possibility, photo #2 does not meet the criteria for such an anomaly. It is merely a triangular-shaped cloud formed due to wind current.

Photo #3, Disk in Cloud

I analyzed this photo by enlarging, changing the lighting and contrast, and observed a typical cloudy day with no anomalies. The disk in the cloud the witness is referring to in all likelihood was a Hole-Punch or Canal Cloud. This type of cloud is formed when aircraft pass through altocumulus clouds that are rich with supercooled water droplets.

Photo #4, Cloud Balls

I analyzed this photo by enlarging, changing the lighting and contrast, and observed a typical cloudy day with no anomalies.

Conclusion

My conclusion is based on the witness’ brief statement along with photos submitted referring to a triangle and disk seen in the clouds. These are very common misidentified UFOs and depicted in countless YouTube videos and across the internet.

Case file status; misidentified natural cloud formations.

Apophenia: the tendency to perceive a connection or meaningful pattern between unrelated or random things (such as objects or ideas). The human tendency to see connections and patterns that are not really there—gives rise to conspiracy theories.
