A giant cloud monster was spotted floating in the sky above Chile on Wednesday following the Calbuco volcano eruptions. For obvious reasons, the strange man-like formation has creeped out religious fanatics who believe the giant is a actually sign from the gods.
After 40 years, the Calbuco volcano made news this past Wednesday when it erupted, covering the National Reserve Llanquihue and the surrounding 12 miles with massive plumes of ash and smoke. The explosions, which were captured by an unsuspecting hiker, have been somewhat overshadowed (pun) by the strange cloud-shape that appeared in the sky over Puerto Montt shortly afterwards.
According to the photographer, Hariet Grunewald, the strange figured loomed down over the city for quite some time before dissipating completely into the sky.
“An erupting volcano is God’s way of showing he is unhappy,” said Juanma Ortiz Arredondo, another local woman who was on hand to witness the strange shape in the sky. “This smoke man is probably a message that he is keeping a watch on us and our behavior.”
So there you have it folks. Is it a sign from God himself, or just boring old pareidolia? You decide. Leave your thoughts in the comments below, but remember, Cloud God is watching, so be nice.
