Look Up!

On July 10, 2011, physiotherapist and amateur photographer Luc Perrot climbed to the top of Cirque of Mafate, a remote and inaccessible volcanic crater on Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean, to record a time-lapse video of cloud movement.
As he stood at 2,000 ft. altitude, he scanned the horizon for a good shot and saw an eerie Jesus-like figure standing in the midst of the clouds with his arms outstretched.

Perrot said, “As I looked up I noticed a shadow floating on clouds surrounded by a rainbow… It can probably be explained scientifically. There are lots of different climatic phenomena like the Brocken spectre and fogbows, but it does look amazing and is unique.”

“But he said to them: It is not for you to know the times or moments, which the Father hath put in his own power…. And when he had said these things, while they looked on, he was raised up: and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they were beholding him going up to heaven, behold two men stood by them in white garments. Who also said: Ye men of Galilee, why stand you looking up to heaven? This Jesus who is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come, as you have seen him going into heaven.” Acts 1:7-11

  3. Beautiful, heart warming picture!!!

  4. Brocken spectre is the name of this weather phenomenon. I am a very religious person….also a meteorologist. This happens when the person cast a shadow on lower level clouds below. also called Brocken bow or mountain spectre, is the apparently enormous and magnified shadow of an observer, cast upon the upper surfaces of clouds opposite the sun. The phenomenon can appear on any misty mountainside or cloud bank, or even from an aeroplane, but the frequent fogs and low-altitude accessibility of the Brocken, a peak in the Harz Mountains in Germany, have created a local legend from which the phenomenon draws its name. The Brocken spectre was observed and described by Johann Silberschlag in 1780, and has since been recorded often in literature about the region. However it can be seen in any mountain region.
    Just wanted to share with you what you have seen.
