Cloud formations can be astonishing to watch especially when face-like patterns appear in the clouds.
People all over the world have filmed strange faces appearing in the sky. Some of these faces are funny, others are almost creepy.
Some think this is the human brain recognizing patterns, ‘seeing things in the clouds’ and others think they are supernatural apparitions but in fact the phenomenon of seeing faces in the clouds is called facial pareidolia.
But don’t worry, it’s no sign of madness, it’s common for people to see non-existent features because human brains are uniquely wired to recognize faces, so that even when there’s only a slight suggestion of facial features, like a face in the cloud, the brain automatically interprets it as a face.
So relax, look at the sky and sometimes intricate faces and other forms can appear in a cloud.
Rare cloud formations can be unforgettable.
