Over the weekend, a rare phenomenon made it’s debut over the Isle Of Palms in South Carolina. The unusual spectacle is baffling everyone who sees it. This is amazing!
It was reported by KCTV5 that the cloud formation lasted for about an hour. The once-in-a-lifetime sighting has been dubbed a “fire rainbow”.
Dozens of witnesses across the area submitted photos of the beautiful phenomenon, also known as “iridescent clouds”.
These photos are sure to take your breath away!
To some, the cloud resembled a multi-colored angel hovering overhead.
Others believed the glory and wonder was a sign of Christ’s soon return.
According to KCTV5’s Meteorologist Justin Lock: A strict set of conditions are required for fire rainbows to appear. First, they only occur in high-level cirrus clouds made up of tiny ice crystals. Lock explains:
“To produce the rainbow colors the sun’s rays must enter the ice crystals at a precise angle to give the prism effect of the color spectrum.” Lock said, adding the sun must be at an altitude of at least 58 degrees above the horizon. “Again, it has to do with getting the precise angle.”
Regardless of what causes this beautiful phenomenon, I got chills as I saw photos of sightings over the beach, multiple hotels, the highway, and various places across town.
It’s just beautiful!
I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like it!
When I saw these photos couldn’t help but think of the verse in the Bible that talks about Christ’s return to earth. People get ready! Jesus is comin’!
“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come. It’s like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with their assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch. Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back–whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. And what I say to you I say to all: Stay awake.” Mark 13:32-37
