12 Amazing Images Of Faces In The Sky Observed Worldwide

14 April, 2012 - Depending on the situation and place, looking at the clouds can be relaxing, educative and sometimes even a little scary, like for example when you look at the picture of those eyes seen staring from behind the clouds...

Have you ever seen anything unusual when you have gazed at the sky and admired the colors of the clouds?

Cloud formations can be astonishing to watch.

It often happens people see what they think are landscapes, patterns and various constructions in the clouds.

Rare cloud formations can be unforgettable.

As curious and fantastic as it may sound, people all over the world have filmed strange faces appearing in the sky.

Some of these faces are funny, others are almost creepy

We have put together a collection of some the most astonishing "faces in the sky" seen be people worldwide.

What can you see on this image? People see a face with staring eyes. Many would say it is weird and somewhat creepy. This face was filmed in Makeevki, Russia during a thunderstorm.

Interestingly, people also reported seeing a "Miracle Cross" during the storm. Look at the video and judge for yourself what you think.

As you can see in the video, not only one face is visible but three! It's really amazing!

It is not a naturally occurring one. Looking perhaps a bit like a gigantic owl monster, the cloud pictured above resulted from a series of flares released by an air force jet over the Atlantic Ocean in May.
The jet that released the flares, a C-17 Globemaster III, is seen on the right. The flares release smoke and the resulting pattern is sometimes known as a smoke angel. The circular eyes of the above smoke angel are caused by air spiraling off the plane's wings and are known as wingtip vortices. Credit: Russell E. Cooley IV, USAF

The images above come from, respectively, CNN's television coverage and a photo snapped by freelance photographer Mark D. Phillips (who subsequently sold his picture to Associated Press) as New York's World Trade Center towers burned after the terrorist attack on 11 September 2001. Neither image was manipulated.

Naturally, there is a scientific explanation why we see faces in various objects. Scientists call it Pareidolia. It is a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being perceived as significant. Common examples include seeing images of animals or faces in clouds, the man in the moon, and hearing hidden messages on records played in reverse.

Nevertheless, as we have just seen, cloud formations can be incredible to watch. We really live in an amazing world!

If you have taken any interesting photos, you can always send the images to us so we can publish them.

Fantastic Images Of Man-Made Clouds A Result Of ATREX Mission
Early in the morning on March 27, 2012, NASA launched 5 small rockets from the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. Each rocket released a chemical tracer that created milky, white clouds at the edge of space. Some of these man- made clouds were truly amazing! These rockets were part of the anomalous transport rocket experiment or ATREX mission, which is studying high altitude winds. The launches and the spectacular clouds were reported to be seen from as far south as Wilmington, N.C.; west to Charlestown, W. Va.; and north to Buffalo, N.Y

New Evidence Links Earth's Extreme Weather To Human-Caused Global Warming
The past decade has been one of unprecedented weather extremes. Scientists of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) in Germany argue that the high incidence of extremes is not merely accidental. From the many single events a pattern emerges. At least for extreme rainfall and heat waves the link with human-caused global warming is clear...

"Sacred" 1.7 Million Volt Light Of The Gods Creates Miracles!
Today, his cool experiment enables Zeus-like miracles! For the ancient Greeks, the occurrence of lightning mean that Zeus, lord of heaven, was often very angry and upset. God used to throw jagged, terrifying bolts of lightning, like spears of fire. This was for the ancients, a "sacred light".
In his lab near Chicago, Illinois, a retired electrical engineer, Bert Hickman, uses a particle accelerator acrylic plastic to "grab and keep the wrath of Zeus"...

20,000-Solar-Mass Black Hole Found At The Core Of A Now-Destroyed Dwarf Galaxy
The formation of stellar-mass black holes through the collapse of massive stars is well accepted. However, it is not yet completely clear how the supermassive objects are formed.
They may form through the merger of smaller, intermediate-mass black holes (IMBHs) weighing hundreds to thousands of suns.

The pulse timing of this object is considered unusual. What kind of phenomenon is related to this object? It is the first time this kind of phenomenon has been observed by astronomers.

The "Cloaked" Star Was Difficult To Find
An object obscured by dust, and buried in a two-star system enshrouded by dense gas, is not easy to find.
A "cloaked" star was discovered after it ate a little of its neighbor. The meal must have given the star a bit of indigestion, because it "burped" with a blast of high-energy radiation, which gave it away.

Astronomical Mystery: Giant Alien Planet Orbiting Three Suns
Binary stars are well-known and even trinary systems may be common but most of them are crowded together and thus, difficult to find and study. Additionally, it has long been considered they are inhospitable to planets...

Sagittarius B2(N) Cloud - Precursor To Life In The Universe
A few years ago, astronomers directed their telescopes toward the galactic center and the dust cloud Sagittarius B2, located less than 400 light years from the galactic center and some 25,000 light-years from Earth. "Clouds like this one are the raw material for new stars and planets. We know that complex chemistry builds prebiotic molecules in such clouds long before the stars and planets are formed...."

Radio Emission From Ultracool Dwarf Detected By Arecibo Telescope
The Arecibo Telescope in Puerto Rico has discovered sporadic bursts of polarized radio emission from the T6.5 brown J1047+21.
Because Arecibo is a single, fixed-dish telescope, it has a restricted practical sensitivity to weak, quiescent emission from radio sources...

Power To See Most Distant Objects In The Universe
The 3C294, is one of the most distant galaxies recorded by Chandra, the most sophisticated X-ray observatory ever built. The cluster 3C294 is even 40 percent farther (!) than the next most distant x-ray galaxy cluster. Chandra focus on X-rays from high-energy regions of the Universe and see the invisible. It is so sensitive that it can capture images of particles as they disappear into a black hole deep in outer space.
