We've all seen clouds that look like things we recognize, you won't believe how weird clouds are in today's article, let's look at 15 strange clouds seen around the world....
15 Clouds For A Human Face
One of the most frightening things you can see in a cloud is what appears to be the shape of a human face, and in 2016 some stunning footage was recorded of one floating across the countryside as storm clouds moved toward the sunlight, distinctive facial features lighting up, eyes, noses, and even ears being scanned to see such a shape. Distinguished in the cloud is a phenomenon called pareidolia which is a term psychologists use to describe how the brain interprets vaguely familiar shapes and perceives them as clearly identifiable and recognizable people in this case although there is absolutely no doubt that the cloud appears to be a person that gave rise to The belief of a number of people that there is something spiritual about it perhaps the soul of a person who has recently died or a higher being that was traveling through the sky
14 Cloud Demon
There is a volcano in the Andes mountain range in southern Chile and it is one of the volcanoes (the eruptions most photographed by the camera), and also one of the four volcanoes responsible for the development of most of the new geographical features in the surrounding area over the past hundreds of thousands of years in the second half of the century Twenty. A new eruption of a volcano has evacuated thousands of nearby villagers, and some photographers took the time to take pictures of emerging dust clouds even though one of the most spectacular came to light. To show the demons' head soaring above the mountain, the gaps in the formation allowed bright sunlight to shine through them that looked like murderous eyes and it was no wonder that the people who saw this morning took it as a sign that they needed to get out of the city as soon as possible.
13 Cloud Chicken Portland
Oftentimes, you may point out some form of someone in the clouds and tell them what you see but they are not able to see it as you do, this is usually because you are both looking at it from a slightly different angle from each other which means they are actually seeing something completely different, So times when a cloud takes on an undeniably obvious shape like this chicken seen in clouds is Portland Oregon poultry which is actually surprisingly common because it just requires so many glides to get it together the right way, it now begs the question which chicken came first or the cloud.
12 Cloud Angel Houston
In 2018, Danny Ferraro of Houston Texas was driving along a section of Interstate 105 when he looked up to see something incredible. and the imagination of others immediately some even pointed out as evidence that his guardian angel was watching her now known as the angel of houston, this was obviously a fluke in the way the sun was interacting with the clouds as soon as he looked up but it was an undeniable shape on you That you wonder if there's something more going on here than it seems at first and we love it.
11 Clouds In The Shape Of A Castle In The Sky
With so many mountain ranges and vast terrain that clouds can form above, it is no surprise that China has much more than its fair share of unusual heavenly formations, but this form transcends others as if there is a castle above the clouds because of the interaction between its formation and the shadows that It was thrown at her and at first you might think this was some kind of elaborate falsification, it's actually that although there is a type of optical illusion called fata morgana which occurs when there is a well-defined area of warm air on top of a layer of cooler air, this causes Light refracts in an unusual way and can result in images stacked on top of each other like this, the clouds didn't actually form a castle but from a distance what you see is a blueprint of a city appearing higher in the sky than it really is.
10 Feather Cloud
When the air is still cloudy certain types of fluffy clouds can start to look just like feathers on a clear day If you see a picture of one it can become difficult even to be able to tell if you are looking at a cloud far away in the sky or a feather Much closer to the camera, and the reason this happens is due to the weird way ice crystals form inside structures which in this case are hexagonal when there's only a light breeze they form tufts like you get feathers and it's almost unbelievable when you see them in real life than Surprisingly, they usually only form at elevations of 20,000 feet or higher, so in fact they must be gigantic to us so we can see them like that clearly from Earth.
9 Cloud Panama City
It has long been known that clouds are affected by the changing height of the terrain they pass through but with the development of human structures reaching into the sky, entirely new phenomena became more common in 2012, and the image was taken by a helicopter as it flew over Panama City in Florida and as you can see It seems that there are waves of clouds flowing over the buildings towards each other all of a sudden even though they are moving in the opposite direction and it is the result of a process called orographic lift. Humidity to about one hundred percent and cloud formation The temperature and humidity should be perfect for this to happen. It actually happens a few times a year it can be so thick that it's almost impossible to see the heights, and definitely not a good day to visit the beach before we turn.
8 Clouds Of Mamatos
The mammatus cloud which literally means memory cloud is a strange formation that sees pods like structures suspended below the main cloud cover and can look like a string of words seen all over the world and usually forms above the ground at a high altitude or when there is a thunderstorm it happens because of pockets A little bit of cold air falling under the clouds hanging from them when sunlight hits them at the right angle that can be amazing to see and you can't believe each ball is usually a third of a mile long and up to two miles wide, and it usually lasts for ten minutes or so before to dissipate and rejoin the host cloud, but a new cloud can continually form in the right conditions for up to a few hours .
7 Cloud Worm
Have you ever looked up at the sky and seen what looks like a portal or a wormhole that can lead to another world or even a different dimension known as fall-striped holes, they also mistook secret science experiments or pilot planes but despite having the exact strange appearance we know How they form is the result of the rapid formation of ice crystals due to the presence of supercooled water in the air but they tend to either fall to the ground or evaporate leaving a strange hole in the cloud that just looks like something has flown in or opened up and sometimes rainbows or other atmospheric effects can occur Within it, this gives the illusion that you are looking through a different reality and have always been associated with the work of gods or unknown entities.
6 Cloud Stairs To Heaven
In 2016, a resident of Accrington, Lancashire, UK drove her daughter to school during a storm, she looked up at the sky and saw something she couldn't believe she often takes pictures of cloud formations but on this occasion something very strange was gathering in front of her which looked just like A ladder leads to the sky, there is a clear shadow that is cast down due to the high clouds and the way they block the sunlight but fill in two other clouds perfectly placed in the shade to give the appearance that there are steps a ray of light on both sides completes the illusion in one of the most spiritual cloud images The one you'll ever see to make things more mystical is actually a church behind the buildings in the distance directly below where the ladder seems to rise from, is this actually a sacred event or is it just pure coincidence.
5 Cloud Flows
The Kelvin-Helmholtz instability is a phenomenon in fluid dynamics that sees the formation of ocean waves such as structures over liquid, it occurs when winds blow strongly over the surface of the water and in the right conditions can occur on the upper surface of a cloud. They can form anywhere and can even be seen in the red spot of Jupiter and on the surface of the Sun on Earth They can occur on any of the five major cloud types especially on thin clouds and form a very distinctive curly wavy shape that occurs when the wind moves at a much higher speed than it is down and create instability within the cloud structure and more inconveniences on windy or stormy days they may only last a few minutes before they dissipate, we know their odd looks are on every cloud watcher's wish list and can be so influential that they've led to the development of countless artworks For her over the years Van Gogh for example, the starry night oil on canvas is believed to have been inspired by a fortune cloud, and if you see one, you can't help but stand and enjoy the view.
4 Cloud Dragon
In 2015, amateur photographer Nicholas Locatelli was visiting Briones Provincial Park in California when he spotted a dark storm cloud starting to form in the sky above him. He did what any photographer would do and started taking pictures of them but it was only when he was looking through them the next day in The house when he fully realized what he had managed to capture, and to his astonishment, one of the photos looked like a dragon spouting fire from its mouth and the definition of the figure was amazing, he had a huge nose dark eyes and she had an angry aura around her as the photo was taken in the evening as the sun was setting the light creating Colorful tint behind it directs the focus to the mouth and flame and makes it look all amazingly real punk. The photo was an instant hit once it was shared online, and unlike other photos of clouds, there seems to be no discussion of what people are seeing according to a local acronym, he was very lucky with the timing because the clouds were moving quickly, and if he had taken the photo after only a few seconds, he was not There is a chance that the dragon will appear in a further development, he took the photo only a few days before the photo. George's Day is a holiday celebrated around the world for the patron saint who was said in legend to have killed countless dragons during his lifetime.
3 Cloud Elephant
When Margaret Worrell took her dogs for a walk in Scotland in 2013, the last thing she expected to see was an animal more common in the African savannah, she roamed along the river banks and was taking pictures of butterflies and more. The insects that were thriving at that time of year looked across the river into the sky and noticed almost immediately a cloud picked up an unmistakable razor of an elephant that looked as if it was stomping through the bushes at first I thought was looking at Dumbo from the famous Disney movie then grabbed the camera to take a picture until She has evidence of what she saw to her surprise that the elephant cloud was more visible in the picture and you could easily see her short body. Torso head in big ears According to experts, this was a type of cumulus cloud known to create thin formations with clearly defined edges and usually at elevations o She sat there for no more than 6,500 feet observing it for several minutes as it drifted slowly across the sky and for a split second She just refused to check on her dog when she looked back and was totally gone.
2 Cloud UFOs
Countless people around the world have claimed to have seen strange objects in the sky, but is it possible that most of these sightings are actually just a cloud that you thought most would know the difference, but there is one type of cloud. Which can take a particularly strange shape In 2015, social media was a buzz in Cape Town, South Africa with images of a series of cloud formations by Table Mountain that were oddly spherical or at least five of them and it's easy to see why so many people initially The fear was that these were alien visitors hovering over the city and formed when warm, moist air flowed through uneven terrain such as mountains and valleys, and this could cause it to cool off and cause moisture to condense into clouds due to the way the wind swirled.
Bowl-shaped clouds take on their shape and always occur perpendicular to the direction of airflow due to the unique geography of Cape Town with Table Mountain to one side and us other systems passing through nearby arid regions such clouds are actually very common due to the altitude at which they form they are technically known as stratocumulus Land lenticularis with the Latin name translating to the lens of such structures, is also known as turbulence. Pilots of powered planes do their best to avoid them whenever they can, but see them as some of the most enjoyable flying experiences because the high air inside them lifts them to heights well above current world records for distance and altitude in a glider thanks to the leverage obtained while flying across One of these types of cloud formations, it is thought likely that the vast majority of UFO sightings around the world were actually clouds like these because when they form in places you don't see often they can be quite unexpected, imagine for yourself What would you think if you saw one of these above you that looks almost exactly like the opening scene from Independence Day and at night you look a lot more mysterious.
1 Cloud Skull
Mount Vesuvius in Italy is one of the most famous volcanoes in the world thanks to a volcanic eruption in AD 79 that destroyed the neighboring towns of Pompeii, Herculaneum and a number of other cities, and therefore it has acquired an ambiguous meaning for the people living in the area and especially those. Those who see it every day and there is always a feeling that what happened before could happen again in 2018 the residents saw in my mother in his sight which some felt was a sign that the volcano was waking up again when they saw a cloud of smoke rising over the mountain while showing That their initial fears of a volcano erupting were wrong and the smoke was actually the result of a massive wildfire, the resulting cloud took on a frightening shape that looks as if it's coming out straight from a horror movie, you can see a crystal clear picture. A sinister face or a skull with clear eye sockets and a nose in the mouth some online commentators have pointed out how similar they are - when Voldemort's face appeared in the sky in Harry Potter M Egg and it's hard not to agree with this of course it's just another optical illusion where the features of the clouds happen to be like The ones in the face, so our brains fill in the missing gaps but either way, it's sure to make you stop for a bit to think if you've been in the area and seen it form over a volcano that was responsible for so much death and destruction.
