Strange Clouds Over Moscow: Pictures?

A strange halo cloud over Moscow in Russian looked like a UFO.
There were lots of people who witnessed a ring-shaped cloud appear over Moscow’s western districts, prompting citizens to stop in their tracks to record the phenomenon and put it on YouTube.
I watched the video, but I want to see the clouds up close, where can I find high quality pictures?

Wow. It looked like a scene from the film Independence Day. Meteorologists rejected any theories of the supernatural however, calling it an optical effect.

A spokesman from the city's weather forecast said: 'Several fronts have been passing through Moscow recently, there was an intrusion of the Arctic air too, the sun was shining from the west – this is how the effect was produced.'

If you look closer, you can see sun rays coming through that cloud. Most likely, the sun was setting when the video was being made.

I believe that it could be a hole punch cloud, some of the photos look very simmilar to the one shown here.

Here's a good picture of it:
