Nothing was on fire, that was just a really weird, really big cloud

Weird cloud over Boston

Colleen Glenney caught the unusual cloud at sunset over the Back Bay this evening.

WCVB's Mike Wankum explains "a very strong upper level wind appears to be the cause - a jet reaching 140 m.p.h. The cloud stretched from the md-Atlantic to here.

The menacing cloud that was over Chicopee.

It did catch my eye too! Walking on Clarendon St to Back Bay Station entrance, the long cloud rose behind the station from the south. There was similar cloud just east of it, but not as unique.

Yeah, it's a cloud

Who's saying this is important? You're right - it's just a cloud. A very cool looking, interesting, noteworthy, quirky cloud. Cool stuff is cool. And if you've been here awhile, then you know I like quirky stuff.


I saw it too!

I spotted it as I was crossing the bridge over the Fort Point Channel around 5:00. I tried to figure out how to get a picture of it, but it was just so tall...!

Thankee, Sai King, for making that the only thing I can think when I see things like this.

Nice one!

I hadn't thought of that, but I feel like now I always will going forward.
