Meteorologists recently told The San Francisco Chronicle that there are “altocumulus standing lenticular clouds” in the Bay Area, which look similar to UFOs.
- “It’s not very uncommon to see,” said Anna Schneider, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, according to The San Francisco Chronicle.
- These clouds come “when winds blow perpendicular to a mountain or other geographic barrier, like a canyon or body of water,” according to Schneider.
- The clouds will often appear when winds are strong in the spring and winter.
The National Weather Service said the clouds are in the area as well.

UFO talk on the rise
It’s not surprising people would say these are UFOs since there’s a lot of UFO talk right now in the national discourse.

According to The Washington Post, a report about everything the U.S. knows about UFOs is going to be made public soon. The report will specifically have an analysis from the director of national intelligence and the secretary of defense on UFOs.
- “Frankly, there are a lot more sightings than have been made public,” Ratcliffe told Fox News.
