Signs In The Heavens: Incredible Cloud Formation In Portugal

An incredible cloud formation which appeared over the skies of Portugal has been dubbed the ‘hand of God’.

The cloud took the form of a fist from Heaven with a hand holding a fireball as it dominated the skyline across the island of Madeira on Monday.

And weather blogger Rogerio Pacheco, 32, could not believe his luck when he looked up at the clouds while commuters made their way to work in the morning rush hour.

The awe-inspiring snaps have since been shared online after Mr Pacheco opted to post them on his blog.

Amazed onlookers have compared the bright orange cloud to everything from a flaming fist of fury to the iconic comet featured in the classic video game Final Fantasy VII.

Mr Pachero said: ‘As soon as I saw the sky, I was immediately intrigued and I just had to grab my camera to take photo.’
