Giant Cinnamon Bun Appears in the Sky over Turkey

At least, that's what I'm going to call it until someone actually tastes it to verify its flavor.

If it's not a cinnamon bun, then the mysterious object that appeared in the sky over Bursa, Turkey on Thursday might be a lenticular cloud. The US National Weather Service defines those objects as clouds formed:

...when relatively stable, fast moving air is forced up and over a topographic barrier that is oriented more or less perpendicular to the direction from which the upper-level wind is blowing.

The forces that shaped this cinnamon bun must have been purely coincidental, I'm sad to say.

Fox Weather notes that sightings like this one are unusual. Lenticular clouds, which signal impending preciptation, are far more likely to occur over mountainous areas.
