Why does this happen to the cloud?
A Sky punch appears to be created by drops of water that are formed in cumulus clouds that become frozen and start to drop down causing the shape of the cloud to break apart forming the gaping hole shown in these various images. Later on, the frozen water is heated up and transformed into water vapor which creates the rainbow effect in the gaping hole in the cloud!
