Identified flying objects

Lenticular clouds have elongated, streamlined shapes. They are sometimes mistaken for flying saucers. Can you see why?!

I took these on Friday afternoon.

I took this one later on. As you can see, there was still a lot of iridescence in the sky.

More of my pictures of lenticular clouds here. More information about iridescence here. And there is a particularly good explanation of the origins of lenticular clouds and the iridescence that often accompanies them, here.
