Von Karman cloud vortices above Alexander Selkirk Island, Chile.  These clouds look like they have had a hole punched through them. In fact they are naturally occurring vortices crafted by wind patterns on the clouds.

This image was captured by the Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM ) sensor on NASA's Landsat 7 satellite.
