The Alaska Clouds or Formation

Bizarre photos of Alaskan clouds — or what appeared to be a formation — have sparked conspiracy theories.

Heather Isackson first posted some of the photos to the Palmer Alaska Buzz Facebook group on April 8. She wrote, “Not sure what, but it looked cool.”

The strange photos sparked a number of theories. However, the Alaska State Troopers offered a more mundane explanation in a statement on Facebook.

Here’s what you need to know:


The strange Alaskan clouds sparked various theories

Here are some of the comments and theories from the comments thread on the Palmer Alaska Buzz page, including from other people who saw the clouds.

“I saw it and it really looked like a plane was going to crash. But I reckon we would have heard something by now.”

“Lazy Mountain. Eruption.”

“rocket launch.”

“Poker Flats Rocket Launch. They launched two rockets a few hours ago.” But another person replied, “You see, but Poker Flat is 250 miles northwest of Palmer. That would have to be an enormous cloud to see in Palmer.”

“UFO crash,” one man suggested.

“Asteroid trail,” suggested another person.


Several people thought they saw a plane go down, but Alaska State Troopers found no sign of one; However, they believe the plume was a vapor trail from a commercial jetliner

Several people took to social media to report that they thought a plane had crashed.

Alaska State Troopers reported on Facebook that they searched the area and found nothing. They write:

Alaska State Troopers and our partners at the Alaska Rescue Coordination Center investigated the photos and video of Lazy Mountain that were reported to the Troopers and also circulated on social media this morning. There were no reports of overdue aircraft or ELT activations indicative of a plane crash. A helicopter rescue team flew a mission around the Lazy Mountain area this morning and found nothing suspicious and there were no signs of downed planes.

Further investigation revealed that a large airliner was flying in the area around the time the photos and video were taken. The aircraft was contacted and reported normal flight operations en route to JFK Airport in New York. Soldiers believe the photos and video showed a vapor trail from the airliner combined with the rising sun, together creating the unique atmospheric sight.

We appreciate the numerous Alaskans who reported the suspicious sight to law enforcement this morning.

Kassandra Morris Allred wrote in the State Troopers comments thread: “But my house is on KGB (not near Lazy Mountain). I had it in my backyard, a few minutes later two jets sped past. Above my roof before I heard her.”

But another person wrote in the comments thread: “Last year in July we saw the same thing in Anchorage. I have photos of what at first looked like a 90 degree angle from the ground straight into the stratosphere and then sort of fell apart after a while.”

But one woman wrote: “You’re kidding me… THAT wasn’t a con-trail. THAT didn’t come off a jet.. Shame on you for lying to the general public. We’re supposed to TRUST AST.. Lost a few degrees of my trust today..”
