    I saw something like the central few balls in this cloud, covering the whole sky, like a cobble stone roof. It was in San Bernardo, Argentina Atlantic beaches, in February 1986-87 ( I don't remember exactly now).
    Perfect round cotton balls covering the whole sky. I didn't notice an alignment in the pattern, but there were perfectly spaced. Completely surreal.
    My father took the camera that day, went to the beach with my sister and took pictures of her jumping on the sand dunes… I was soooo hoping he sees it… and he didn't even notice the whole sky. You can imagine my feeling of impotence.
    I still hope today somebody caught it on film.

    I think it's almost a once in a life time event getting to see such clouds. At the moment of this shot, I was very impressed to see such display of nature's beauty. That of course was after the mere though of an invasion from outer space in disguise :-)
    Thanks for sharing your Xperience on this!
