FYI: tonight’s weirdness in the sky is not supernatural in any way

Heads up, folks!  Some scientists are going to do some sciencey stuff tonight which will lead to weirdly colorful clouds.  If you see something like that in the sky, it is not:

  1. A U.F.O.
  2. The Rapture (finally)
  3. Buddha descending on a unicorn
  4. Kanye West’s monstrous ego coming to devour us all

Thank you in advance for not flipping out like these other people, mmmkay…

Say it!
