“Jesus” appears in clouds

Behold! Jesus Christ standing on a cloud.

Keen part-time photographer Luc Perrot was apparently left stunned when he stumbled across the spooky shadow as he stood 2,000ft up on top of the volcanic Cirque of Mafate peak, on Reunion Island.

The Frenchman had climbed the enormous mountain to record a time-lapse video of the clouds movement as they passed by on July 10 this year. But when he looked up from his camera, he was startled to see the cloaked figure stood in front on the clouds.

He said: 'I was making a time-lapse video with the movement of clouds above the Cirque of Mafate when I began scanning the horizon for a good shot.

'As I looked up I noticed a shadow floating on clouds surrounded by a rainbow. It took me by complete surprise. When I looked back at the footage, it gave me the feeling of divine apparition.

'When I saw the footage I realised the figure was surmounted by a white arc, which reminded me very much of a halo.

'You read about this phenomenon in books but I have never seen it before myself.'

He added: 'It can probably be explained scientifically.'

Yeah, probably, eh?
