This incredible 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 more than 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.”
Another local believed 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. That he is keeping a watch on us and our behavior.”
