It was a week ago today that the Portuguese looked up at the evening sky and were greeted by a beautiful yet slightly unsettling sight over the island of Madeira. A burnt orange cloud formation had formed over the island that looked strikingly similar to a burning clenched fist.
The strange cloud formation was spotted and photographed by weather blogger Rogerio Pacheco who's photos soon got the attention of thousands through social media. Since then there have been countless comparisons and suggestions as to what the cloud formation most closely resembles, from a comet in the video game Final Fantasy to a burning fist or the "Hand of God." Either way Pacheco did an amazing job of photographing this beautiful coincidence.
