The drooping whisps of cloud are commonplace, in fact they will _always _occur at some stage of the formation of the hole, because they are ice crystals falling out of the the cloud to _create_ the hole. They are called virga, or "fall streaks". If you google images for "hole punch cloud" you will see thousands of them. Martin Shough Listen to 'Strange Days...
