Thanks, Hans! That worked for me this time!  And, yes, I LOVE having a couple of local meteorologists to interact with and ask questions of!  George, I have a TON of photos of that cloud formation and I have sent them to my meteorologist friend...

I think it’s a fallstreak hole. The reason is that those “cirrus” clouds are below the altocumulus, You can see that on the right end of the gap.
