Photos: Giant Bird-Shaped Cloud in South Iceland Sky

A very peculiar cloud formation was seen around Reykjanes peninsula in southwest Iceland around 11 pm last night. At one time it seemed as if a giant bird was about to take off and photographers caught many good pictures of the phenomenon.

According to the Icelandic Meteorological Office, altocumulus was noticed in the area yesterday evening and the bird-formation might be a result of that, visir.is reports.
