World of the Bizarre

Man's face seen in clouds before death

A woman in Australia saw a cloud formation that looked like her brother just days before his death.
Marion Dawson couldn't believe the resemblance to her late brother Gerry Wells who died only a few days later of a heart attack and who had been flying overhead to visit family and friends at the time the picture was taken. "I truly believe somebody greater than us knew this was about to happen," said Ms Dawson.
The photo was taken on January 9 at Ocean Shores, on NSW's far north cost, at the same time as Mr Wells was flying overhead from Brisbane to Sydney to visit family and friends, the Northern Star reports.

Definitely a coincidence but is quite a good likeness

I dunno. I always have a feeling there's more to it than just coincidence. Nice story.

Clouds look more like Santa. Think I know 20 people myself who resemble the cloud formation. If I look out my window right now, there is probably a profile I can pick out. Makes a nice funeral story, maybe makes the family feel better, but actually this is a complete non-story.

Interesting but merely a coincidence plus a huge helping of pareidolia Either that or a photoshopped deal.

To be honest, that cloud would look like any old fat dude.

I think a more important fact in this story is the reaction that the people who knew him had on seeing the photo. I have no opinion on the resemblance, I just think its fascinating how people are able to find meaning in oddities like this. I'm not being cynical here. I hope the family was able to find some small peace from this but our primitive desire to find meaning sometimes confounds me.

Not meaning to split hairs, but the cloud has an upturned chin, this guy doesn't. But apart from that the cloud does look very much like him. Strange that the photo was taken while he was in the air flying home to see family one last time. Possibly coincidence but I do believe that some things can be orchestrated by God. That's my belief
