The Clouds Over Aurora - Angels Perhaps?

Updated on September 15, 2016

"Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth—to every nation, tribe, language and people." ---Revelation 14:6

What do You See?


Perhaps-

Do you see what I see?

Perhaps-

I see an angel in each photo taken?

Perhaps-

You see just a bunch of clouds?

Perhaps –

We are just seeing clouds in the shapes of angels?

Perhaps –

I just want to see what I am hoping to see?

Perhaps –

We are just seeing a coincidence that the clouds are shaped like angels right at the precise moment the prayer vigil is taking place in Aurora?

Perhaps-

It is just another coincidence that on another day, different clouds still appear to look like another angel?

Perhaps –

I am crazy to even think such?

Perhaps-

I just think these are cool photos either way?

Perhaps-

You do not?

Perhaps-

I am given a little hope in seeing these photos?

Perhaps-

You are not.

Perhaps-

It is true, that there are angels in these photos?

Perhaps-

It is true, that there are no angels in these photos?

Perhaps-

God placed those clouds there, at that very moment, not for us, but for those suffering?

Perhaps-

Not?

Pareidolia . . . What?


According to en.wikipedia.org, the word to describe seeing images of animals or faces in clouds, the man in the moon or the Moon rabbit, and hearing hidden messages on records when played in reverse is the word pareidolia.

The Most Famous Poem About a Cloud


That poem would be:


I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud

by William Wordsworth


"I wandered lonely as a Cloud

That floats on high o'er Vales and Hills,

When all at once I saw a crowd

A host of dancing Daffodils:

Along the Lake, beneath the trees,

Ten thousand dancing in the breeze.


The waves beside them danced, but they

Outdid the sparkling waves in glee: -

A poet could not but be gay

In such a laughing company:

I gaz'd - and gaz'd - but little thought

What wealth the shew to me had brought:


For oft when on my couch I lie

In vacant or in pensive mood,

They flash upon that inward eye

Which is the bliss of solitude,

And then my heart with pleasure fills,

And dances with the Daffodils."


William Wordsworth Poems in two Volumes:

Moods of my Mind 7 (1807)


In 1815, Wordsworth revised the poem, replacing "dancing" with "golden"; "along" with "beside" and "ten thousand" with "fluttering and". Then, he added a stanza between the first and second, and changed "laughing" to "jocund". The last stanza was not touched.

The Different Types of Clouds

There are three main types of clouds found in the sky; however, they have many derivatives.


Cumulus clouds are white and fluffy, like cotton balls.







Stratus clouds are flattened sheets of cloud that may stay in place for some time.








Cirrus clouds form very high in the sky, and are made up completely of ice crystals. They are wispy and light; and look a bit like feathers in the sky.



Scripture References to Clouds


"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us." ---Hebrews 12:1


"Look, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pieced him; and all peoples on earth will mourn because of him. So shall it be! Amen" ---Rev. 1:7


"After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever." ---1 Thessalonians 4:17


"Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory." ---Matthew 24:30 (Emphasis added.)

      Hi sweet Jo,

      Thank you so much for digging this one up again! You are such a treasure. I believe that small children are able to see the angels so much for so than we are indeed.

      I appreciate you sharing all of this most interesting information as to these facts you have shared here, which add much to the topic of this hub here. You are such a beautiful daughter of the King.

      Thank you, sweetie, for your lovely and insightful comment.

      God bless you. In His Love Always

      Hi Faith good day.

      I believe that there are people who are blessed to see angels and such likes. Rev William Branham back in 1962 saw a mysterious cloud in the shape of a man's head with a wig on it. Just like Revelation said with God having on a wig on the judgement throne for when he's ready to judge this sinful world. William was taken up by a whirl wind into the clouds where he saw a vision and was given revelation for the opening of the seals This happened in Arizona USA. Science captured this great mysterious cloud and its in the museum in America.

      Also there was pillar of fire that accompanied this prophet at most of his healing or preaching sermons. Which was also captured.

      Thanks for sharing :)

      Oh Dearest One Tess ~

      Please do not fret over the dates and your memory of all the details on this day. The Holy Spirit will reveal all to you before you know it, maybe in your dreams and/or visions or just your memory alone. I will pray He does such, as why would this not be His will for you to not share such a truth as this here?

      You heart is so beautiful and I stand amazed. Even if your aunt cannot send the picture . . . the beautiful story will stand alone no doubt dear one, as I have great confidence in your astounding gift as a writer.

      Now, my heart is filled with joy at your excitement!

      In His Love Always, Faith Reaper

      Marites Mabugat-Simbajon 4 years ago from Toronto, Ontario

      Oh my Faith Reaper, I just want to make sure now that out from my recollection at Marmora farm that I am talking about the same visionary. I was putting my comment up here without also thinking about the dates thoroughly. Now, I feel silly.

      I do remember there was a young girl visionary too, and I am now confusing myself with Dory Tan, a woman visionary I think was the right person at that time. She had many visits to the "Holy" farm (summer 1993) where the Virgin Mary would summon her to give her messages by the 10th station of the cross. I have quickly searched about the Marian apparitions online in summer of 1993 and found a very similar events when I was there, and this visionary is Dory. I don't know if there were more of these visions later that year and each year that comes. I was only there once.

      There were Stations of the Cross on the hilltop (overlooking the farm), and masses were said there too with claims as one of the messages to invite priests (a number of them) for that special big day at the location. This was relayed to me by my aunt noting that there were many priests around a stage put up for them to hold mass. She learned about "the advance notice" from a newsletter which drove lots of people to the Marmora grounds that day.

      In one big mass at the farm, I am not sure if I was seeing seven priests but it looked more. And so when I found about the visionary Dory online, there were more than a dozen priests; I had not counted them exactly.

      I arrived in Canada July 13, 1993. That was 19 years ago. My 22 year old girl now who will be a part of my story was still 3 at that time. That dancing sun in September at the farm seemed July to me and yes, I remembered complaining that it was cold, *sigh*. Honestly, I could be mistaken with my dates. I'll have to check with my aunt. I'll based it on how much I can remember and I'll pray that the Holy Spirit will guide me to remembering the right moments.

      I just think that the family who owns the farm are so so so blessed!

      I have to write my aunt if she could send me the photo. I gave it to her for I was afraid that it might get lost with me. Thank you for your encouragement. I'd like to share this awesome experience to everyone. Opinions are open since man have different faiths, but one God.

      I am so excited! First, I have to have the picture back.

      Hi Tess ~

      So glad to see you stopping by to read here. LOL, you are too cute. I am glad you see angels - me too!

      Wow, dear one, what an amazing story. You should write a hub about your amazing experience and ask your aunt for the photo back just to place on the hub.

      Thank you so much for sharing your lovely experience with me here, which really adds so much more beauty to this hub just by your very presence and your sharing. Bless you for that dear one.

      I am always so blessed to read your writing and you are an awesome commenter. There is no button for awesome comment on here, but I give you one from my heart.

      You are too kind to me with your words.

    • coffeegginmyrice profile image

      Marites Mabugat-Simbajon 4 years ago from Toronto, Ontario

      Perhaps, I don't question it myself anymore. I see angels!

      I believe and take symbols as they are before me especially if these symbols are from Above.

      I had witnessed the dancing sun in Marmora, Ontario on my first few days arrival to Canada of July 1993 attending a wide vigil of the Marian apparition to a young girl in this little lot farm where a natural flow of water also have been blessed as Holy Water. I think but not clearly remembering that there were seven priests who held mass on the farm that day. It is a long story for me because I have beautiful chain of experiences in that place at that moment which were mysterious to me, and I can't help it but share that I had taken a photo shot of a floating "smoky" image of the Virgin Mary (arms extended) in the foreground against dark pine trees. I gave the photo to my pious aunt for safe keeping. This, I have considered as my most precious gift from Above welcoming us to Canada.

      Beautiful and awesome and pinning!

      I believe!
