'God' Appears In Clouds Following Volcanic Eruption
A photo shows the eerie moment that a giant 'human' cloud formed in the sky, following the Calbuco volcano eruption in Chile.
In the photo, the cloud appears to resemble a mysterious human-like figure, and locals believe it could be a sign from the gods – after the volcano blew its top for the first time in over 40 years.
On Wednesday, a state of emergency was declared after the volcano erupted, sending a huge plume of ash and smoke 12 miles into the sky.
The spooky figure was captured by Hariet Grunewald, 33, who lives in the nearby town of Puerto Montt.
'When I heard the eruption I rushed to the window of my house and just started taking photos', Hariet said.
'And then I saw this man appear.
'At first I thought perhaps it was just me who could see him.
'But when I showed my friends and family they all agreed'.
And another local believed that the unusual eruption was God's way of displaying an apparent unhappiness.
Juanma Ortiz Arrendondo, 60, said: 'An erupting volcano is God's way of showing he is unhappy.
'This smoke man is probably a message.
