This UFO shaped cloud appeared over Mt. Shasta in Northern California on the morning of February 12th, 2020. Lenticular clouds like this are a common sight above Mt. Shasta and can be seen from Southern Oregon frequently. The sunrise gave this particular 'lennie' an eerie and beautiful glow, prompting photographers to bring their cameras out and share the photos.
