Ball of confusion

This is a photo of an immense gas cloud above the Earth’s atmosphere, as photographed from the ISS. The origin of the cloud is up for debate, with the chief explanations being:
1. Ozone depletion from excessive photodissociation of man-made halocarbon refrigerants (CFCs, freons, halons) on Earth
2. The physical manifestation of Ted Cruz’s asinine mock-filibuster a couple weeks ago
3. Friday night’s chili and bean space station dinner
