Image Details:

Just a normal pre-dawn sky here in Pisgah National Forest. But, there's a donut shape on the bottom of that cloud which isn't something I've seen before. I've read holes can be punched in clouds by airplanes, but I didn't notice any before I noticed the shape in the cloud. I'm stumped.
