3 digital pics of 2 conjoined dark cloud circles with illuminated crown of blue/white light in sky at 4 pm on Sun, 30 Oct 2022.

While I was alone in my car driving North on I-380 from Cedar Rapids to Cedar Falls, the generally strange look of the clouds in the westerly sky caught my attention. Then I saw the two conjoined circle clouds, darker than the other wisps of clouds, which appeared to be illuminated at the top with a crown of bright blue/white light. I observed they seemed to be moving separately from the surrounding clouds, or that they were not moving while the other clouds moved past them in the sky above them. Out of curiosity, I turned off I-380 about three miles later, on the exit for Center Point. I wanted a clear view, so turned left to cross over the interstate and drove a short distance to get past power lines that would have obstructed my line of sight of the objects, then turned left onto Wildlife Road, and pulled over on the side of the gravel road. I stepped out of my car with my iOS phone (Apple 13) and found where the objects were in the sky, then took three photos. Once Id done that, I hopped back in the car and continued home.
