Weird weather can easily play tricks on our eyes. It can make entire cities look like they’re floating, or like a tsunami wave is descending from the clouds.

In Cape Town, South Africa this weekend, clouds that looked like UFOs hung low over the city and surrounding areas, appearing as if aliens might land and start abducting residents.

Of course, these clouds weren’t real spaceships — they were simply the product of changes in air temperature.
