    This clip of a strange cloud, which emerged over the city of Teixeira de Freitas in Brazil, puzzled and frightened both locals and internet users. The eerie orange-red cloud formation resembling a hand was backlit by the setting sun.

    The phenomenon was captured in all its glory on a video by city resident João Paulo Magalhães at 5 pm on August 17. It remained for only about four minutes, which is why local people were worried it would form a tornado. 

    Some assumed it was a meteorite (before it dissipated); others supposed supreme forces produced the "apocalyptic" cloud. According to local meteorologists, the phenomenon was a dust cloud.
