Happy Science or just science?


This picture is taken from a video on YouTube portraying a strange phenomenon over Moscow.  Scientists say that this is a rare but not unheard of meteorological  phenomenon called a “hole punch” cloud.  What made my spine tingle, however, was the similarity to the promotional poster for Happy Science’s newest anime, to be released on the 17th of this month, The Rebirth of Buddha.


Hole punch indeed!  Suspicious, ne? Hopefully it is the artist who has been inspired by real-world hole punch clouds (even though they are so rare) and not the other way around…
