A fallstreak hole, also known as a punch hole cloud, is a large circular  gap, that can appear in cirrocumulous or altocumulous clouds.  are formed when the water temperature in the clouds is below freezing but the water has not frozen yet. When ice crystals do form it will set off a domino effect, due to the Bergeon process, causing the water droplets around the crystals to evaporate: this leaves a large, often circular, hole in the cloud
