According to the Weather Network, the phenomenon is known as a “fallstreak hole,” named after the fact that water in that particular region of the cloud is falling to earth, producing pronounced streaks as a result, and leaving behind a “hole” in the cloud.

The results made for some pretty epic scenes from the sky.
