A special type of cloud is often mistaken for a UFO. These clouds, known as 'lenticular clouds' form above a mountain when a breeze creates a number of 'standing' waves on the downwind side of the mountain. If the temperature is right the moisture will condense to produce a lens or saucer shaped cloud. These clouds can be dangerous for pilots of large planes who avoid flying over these planes due to the turbulence above them.
