'Apocalyptic' cloud hangs over town in Brazil

Posted on Saturday, 19 August, 2017 | Comment icon 11 comments
Residents of Teixeira de Freitas were treated to a rather unusual and unnerving spectacle this week.
The menacing-looking phenomenon, which appeared on Thursday night, was soon the talk of the town as witnesses grabbed their mobile phones and uploaded images and videos on to social media.

A post shared by Nana Santos (@nanasantoss_) on

Resembling something out of a scene from the movie Independence Day, the strange cloud formation only lasted for around four minutes before vanishing as quickly as it had appeared.

One witness described it as "the entrance to a meteorite" while another called it "the work of God".

While unusual looking these people conveniently forgot to don their logic hat and take note that the cloud is being illuminated by the evening sun which often casts a variety of colors on objects like clouds. I have often seen geese flying westward in the evening and seeing their tummies lit up with a pinkish-orange hue. Pretty neat to see but it is still a common occurrence.

Ryu, I think they realize that. It just looks cool. Don't be that person, because you're being that person.

Thanks, I'm a big Aliens fan. Took all of three seconds to decide on this particular image. Covenant was good, go rent or buy it if you haven't seen it.

Just saw this, been away and will see Covenant for sure! I liked Prometheus too. I'm a sci-fi junkie, more so than Horror, but I still think Alien was the best monster movie ever made. Thank you!
