Pollock's Mist was a bizarre cloud-like entity encountered by Robert L. Pollock, a crew member on C-130 cargo aircraft during the Vietnam War.

DescriptionEdit

Pollock related a disturbing experience while flying just off the coast of South Vietnam: “I noticed movement at the rear of the boxcar sized empty cargo compartment. I looked and was stunned to see a whirling grey cloudy mass forming at the rear right troop door. The mass was whirling clockwise; it completely filled in the entire rear of the aircraft within seconds.”

When Pollock placed his hand inside the mist, it simply vanished from sight. Then he and the plane’s engineer decided to step inside the strange fog, finding that it completely blocked their vision, as if no light could penetrate it. But otherwise, the mist had no smell or taste and didn’t interfere with breathing. Pollock said he couldn’t even feel it.

Possible ExplanationsEdit

There are several explanations as to what the phenomenon could be. Theories include:

  • A technical failure on the plane
  • A ghost

TriviaEdit

  • Before long, the whole crew had joined Pollock and they “just continued to back away from the mass as it advanced toward the front of the aircraft.”
  • The mass began to go away the way it had appeared, only in reverse. When it got back to the place it had first started forming, it whirled counter-clockwise and then just disappeared into nothing.
