    This morning I went to make an egg and when I cracked it open, this is what I found. Anyone ever seen this before and know why it happens?

    Never seen one. I see you cooked it. How did it cook up? Like a yoke, white or something else?

    When I flipped it there was a loud popping noise from the egg which I assume was that. It had dissappeared once it was off the heat.

    Might have been an air bubble.

    Or should I have said the sound of ectoplasma escaping.

    That was my first thought but looking at the picture I dont know. It looks to yoke shaped to just be an air bubble. It's a mystery.
