This is amazing footage of a phenomenon in the sky that people cannot decide what it is. Is it what it will look like when Jesus returns in the clouds? Is it a sign of an open heaven? Or is it just proof that the heavens declare the glory of God? You decide!
“These clouds are formed of small water droplets of nearly uniform size,” says NASA. “When the sun is in the right position and mostly hidden by thick clouds, these thinner clouds significantly diffract sunlight in a nearly coherent manner, with different colors being deflected by different amounts. Therefore, different colors will come to the observer from slightly different directions.”
The cloud formation itself is known as a “pileus” or “cap cloud” formation, and meteorologists say when this cloud formation is present, it suggests that a storm is quickly gaining strength. In this particular case, the cloud included ice crystals, which refracted light from the sun.
The best time to spot these clouds is right before a storm, but they don’t tend to last very long, and won’t generally be as spectacular as the one recently seen in Costa Rica.
Psalm 19:1 The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known. They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard.
