Stockton Yokels Mistake Cloud for UFO Mothership: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Northern Californian residents were abuzz on social media after they saw a cloud formation they were convinced was the precursor to an alien visitation.


The pictures circulating Twitter are of a sky covered in a sheet of clouds excepting one hole emitting what appears to be a strange blue glow."


In Stockton there isn`t much to do except look up at the sky and imagine that the clouds are elephants, birds, toasters or fairies.

A few residents of this backwaters community saw a cloud formation and were convinced it was a UFO Mothership. They immediately took to Twitter and Instagram to post images of the interesting cloud formation, claiming Stockton was on the verge of being invaded by evil extraterrestrials.

It`s a cloud people, a freaking cloud, go back to your meth and stop polluting Twitter and Instagram with your tomfoolery.
