“Angel” Spotted in South Florida Sky, Residents Say
NBC Miami ^ | Friday, Mar 15, 2013

Posted on 03/15/2013 7:42:56 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Various photos were taken of a cloud that resembles an angel, WPTV reported

Several South Florida residents witnessed what they described as an angel in the clouds, WPTV reported.

Various pictures were taken of what looks like a clear sky, with a noticeable pink cloud that resembles an angel.

It happened the day Pope Francis was announced and some Catholics saw it as a possible sign from God.

Pope Francis Shows Humility on His First Day

“The pope asked to pray for Him,” Cat Sunn told WPTV. “God answered.”

But others found numerous explanations as to what the cloud could be.

Cristina Pina told WPTV that the clouds looked more like a monkey than an angel, Nick Stanley said he saw the dark lord, or Lucifer. Steve Massie said that seeing shapes and faces in non-human objects was simply something he called "pareidolia."

Thousands have viewed the photo on social media, giving the cloud many different interpretations.

Take enough pictures of clouds and you can see most anything.

Mayhap it does, but does it have any religious significance? I doubt it, just another cloud formation to trigger the imagination.

Certainly it does not HAVE to have any religious significance...OTOH, I guess it could, and I also guess that time will tell.

This picture looks more like an angel than the normal pink color. Different people from the area sent Channel 5 pictures from different angles, and they all looked the same. See http://www.wptv.com/gallery/news/news_photo_gallery/angel-in-the-sky# for different pictures from different angles.

viewed from the truthful angle it is a horizontal / linear vapor mass. Not standing upright like an angel... though the little halo is a neat effect.

Angels DONT have wings. Check your bible.
Other heavenly beings have wings (2,4 or 6) but not Angels.
Sorry, I like the images of them having wings, but to be biblically accurate ....Angels do not have wings.

So if someone saw a cloud when he was elected that looked like Evita Peron what would happen?

I remember a few years ago in Austin a Hispanic in San Antonio girl broke up with her boyfriend after finding out he was seeing her best friend on the side. She told a couple of women in the RC church that if you looked at the hood of his car at night while it was in the garage you could see the Virgin of Guadalupe. In a couple of days the guy 100’s of people trying to get into his garage to see his car.

The angels in the Bible are pretty dangerous in their own right.

Clouds can look like all kinds things, especially if you have a wonderful imagination. It can also be a great way to make fun of a pretentious idiot:

Ham. Do you see yonder cloud that ’s almost in shape of a camel?
Pol. By the mass, and ’t is like a camel, indeed.
Ham. Methinks it is like a weasel.
Pol. It is backed like a weasel.
Ham. Or like a whale?
Pol. Very like a whale.

Yes, you are correct. I love reading about them. Have you read Dr. David Jeremiah's book “Angels”? It's good. Max Lucado, Dr. Bruce Wilkinson, and David Dravecky give recommendations for the book. Dr. Rev. Billy Graham also has a good book on angels.

No. As an agnostic, I don't particularity immerse myself in every religious book available. Based on your recommendation I will look for this one, though.

Angels don’t HAVE physical bodies, but CAN take the form of humans (real, not just an illusion).

The fallen angels, mentioned in Genesis and Jude took physical form (leaving their heavenly abode). They are currently chained awaiting judgement.
